Join us for a spiritual reflection on the lived experience of indigenous leaders in the Amazon featuring Cardinal Claudio Hummes, OFM, Archbishop emeritus Sao Paulo, Brazil and other panel guests including Fr. Peter Hughes, Marcos Martinez, Mariangel Marco Teja, and Yakelyn Vasquez. Cardinal Hummes will discuss the importance of Laudato si’ and the future of the Amazon and its peoples. Three indigenous leaders will share their stories of survival and hope.

In this forum we will explore the intersection of human rights, environmental justice, faith, international solidarity, extractive industries, and globalization.
