Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

April 14: “Peace through Policing in Communities and in the World”

Prof. Tobias Winright, Theology, Walsh University

When: Thursday April 14, 7:30 PM

Where: Old Centrum, 1201 N. Central Ave. Indianapolis

Sonsored by Ploughshares, a peace studies collaborative of Earlham, Goshen, and Manchester Colleges

Tobias Winright advocates nonviolence in local policing, and policing internationally as an alternative to military action. A former law enforcement officer in both the areas of corrections and policing, and with experience in lay ecclesial ministry (youth ministry, campus ministry, and hospital ministry), Winright is a Roman Catholic moral theologian who has published a number of articles in journals and chapters in books dealing especially with the ethics of war, peace, policing, and capital punishment. He also gives presentations and workshops for parishes and other groups about a range of theological topics from just-war theory and liturgy to marriage and children. He was voted Educator of the Year at Walsh for the 2003-2004 academic year, and he was also included in Who's Who Among American Teachers 2003-2004.

This event is free and open to the public. Address questions to Emily Zimmerman: ezimmerman@indypeacehouse.org
