There’s a new blog at St. Thomas designed to inspire acts of kindness, great and small, in the UST community. It’s part of the of Acts of Kindness campaign, a joint effort begun by the university’s Office for Mission and Human Resources Department. Today the AOK blog’s moderator, School of Law staff member Ashley Bowes, lauds a co-worker for making Mondays much easier to stomach.
Among the highlights: a reading by award-winning author Ron Hansen; Sephardic music by Israeli singer/songwriter Yasmin Levy; a presentation by a dancer tortured for speaking out against oppression in Iran; an organ recital by Canadian organist and composer Rachel Laurin; and an exhibition of crèches from all over the world.
Longtime UCLA law professor Gerald López, author of Rebellious Lawyering: One Chicano's Vision of Progressive Law Practice (Westview Press, 1992), will speak about his advocacy on behalf of low-income, of-color and immigrant communities.
