On this Labor Day weekend, Fran Quigley will lead us in reflecting about how we can mitigate income and wealth disparity not just in our communities but also in our own workplaces. The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. held that a more equal sharing of our wealth is a necessary foundation for a beloved community. That journey toward economic justice will necessarily include healthy doses of forgiveness, including the self-forgiveness that will allow those of us with comparatively comfortable economic situations to move away from avoidance or ineffectual “liberal guilt” to direct engagement in inequality allaround us. Fran Quigley is a clinical professor of law at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, teaching in the Health and Human Rights Clinic. Students in the Health and Human Rights Clinic advocate for the rights of the poor, with a special focus on individual and systemic barriers to accessing healthcare and the social determinants of health All Souls Unitarian Church, Indianapolis, IN
