Mohrenweiser Lecture Series
Learning to love other people's children: Climate justice, migration, and the ethics of care

PLTS

Nancy Berlinger, PhD, MDiv, is a Hastings Center research scholar whose work focuses on two major themes: societal challenges arising from population aging, and the role of health practitioners, systems, and policymakers in the care and well being of migrants. These themes reflect her longstanding interests in decision-making and care concerning serious illness and near the end of life; safety and harm in health systems, and the moral dimensions of care work.

This free talk will consider two contemporary problems of collective moral action - the care of the planet and the care of migrants - and argue for linking these problems.  The talk will draw on Dietrich Bonhoeffer's account of responsibilities to the "coming generation" to present a framework for ethical reflection and action in our times and looking forward. It will offer guidance for community - level responses by congregations, organizations, and municipal leaders.
