The concluding words of the Pledge of Allegiance—“with liberty and justice for all”—herald the foundational values of the United States. We name justice as our final standard. So, too, is a commitment to justice an animating value of the Catholic tradition. And yet, the distinctive markers of our world—global inequalities, growing disparity between rich and poor, and communities segregated by class and race—present considerable challenges to achieving economic justice. The 2016–2017 Killeen Chair series invites you to join leading philosophers, theologians and policy makers as they explore economic justice in our age.
