Exploring Unifying Love: A Workshop on Racial Justice

Join your OLP sisters for a two-part workshop on exploring racial justice through the lens of the CSJ tradition of Unifying Love. 

The OLP Alumnae Association is excited to welcome Sr. Angela Faustina, CSJ to guide us in conversation, share her experiences confronting racism, and help us learn to heed the CSJ Calls to Action and move forward as agents of Unifying Love.

Sr. Angela Faustina is the first woman of African-American descent to enter the Los Angeles Province of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. More than 40 years ago, Sister worked in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles as a consultant for the Black community. Presently she is working to combat racism and white privilege within her community and systemic racism in the country.

Part 1: Wednesday, February 24, 2021, 6:00 - 7:30 pm PST
Sr. Angela will share her story in conversation with Nicoli Richardson '97, Deputy Equity, Equality Opportunity and Title IX Coordinator
for Healthcare at the University of Southern California.

Part 2*: Wednesday, March 10, 2021, 6:00 - 7:30 pm PST
We will continue our conversation by drawing upon the experiences of our esteemed panelists, including:
Carrie Sawyer, OLP Board Member, CEO at Diversity by Design, and founder of the Inclusion 1st Project
Susan Antolin '06, Student Activities Director and Summer Programs Director at OLP
Kaseba Chibweth '19, a student at Loyola University Chicago pursuing a degree in criminology and criminal justice

*Please note that attendance at Part 1 is required in order to attend Part 2
