Most of us are concerned about some kind of injustice or
unfairness in society. We know what we oppose and what we wish
to promote, but many of us have been unable to formulate a clear
vision of how a more just society might look. Professor Richards is
an esteemed philosopher who spent his life working for and
analysing the meaning of and path to social justice.
Toting a BA from Yale and a JD from Stanford, he was the first legal
volunteer for Cesar Chavez' United Farm Workers Union in the
1960s. He still has an active law practice in California. He will
present his views of the changes needed to effect a peaceful and
productive environment for all citizens of the world.

The event is free. Light refreshments will be served.
