“Building Bridges--National and Global Politics and Religious Tensions"
Time: 5:30 pm
Location: Gloria Dei Lutheran Church 700 Snelling Ave. S. St. Paul, MN 55116
Sponsored by: YAANW
Cost: $10

Contact us: rhokanson@gmail.com
Is this event open to all TCAN member schools? Yes
Details: Gregory E. Sterling, The Reverend Henry L. Slack Dean and the Lillian Claus Professor of New Testament, Yale Divinity School

The globalization of our world has raised the profile of religion as a factor in international relations. The last two US presidents have established three different offices in the State Department and White House that deal with religion globally and nationally. Within the US the recent presidential campaign set religion in high relief both as a rallying factor and as a factor in determining who enters the US. Dean Sterling will address the role of religion as a source of conflict and as a source of peace. He will discuss how religion can serve as a means to build bridges rather than walls and will share how Yale Divinity School is preparing future leaders for this new reality as an example of how communities of all types can flourish together.

The amphibian odd couple celebrate and rejoice in their differences that make them the best-est of friends while joined by a colorful cast of birds, mice, turtles, and that slo-o-ow snail with the mail. Nominated for three Tony Awards® including Best Musical, this unforgettable and tuneful musical is back on our stage after almost a decade! Don’t miss this exuberant story based on the treasured books by Arnold Lobel in a musical that soars like a kite and blossoms like spring.

Details: Do you believe that overbearing state agencies are killing jobs with regulation, particularly in northern Minnesota’s Iron Range? Or do you see Minnesota’s regulatory agencies as heroic protectors of the public interest in clean water? Either way, you would be wrong. Using in-depth experience as WaterLegacy’s Counsel and Advocacy Director, Paula Maccabee will explain how the federal Clean Water Act was envisioned and how it works in practice. Finally, she will propose a role that science, judicial review and new alliances can play in holding regulators accountable to protect clean water.

Paula Maccabee is a graduate of Amherst College (1977) and Yale University Law School (1981) with 36 years of experience in public interest law. Paula has served on the St. Paul City Council and as a Special Assistant Attorney General. In her private practice, she has represented non-profit organizations, local governments, businesses and diverse citizens’ groups seeking environmental protection.

Paula was named as one of Minnesota Lawyer’s 2010 “Attorneys of the Year” for her public interest work and received the 2015 Harvey G. Rogers Environmental Health Leadership Award from the Minnesota Public Health Association for her lifetime of work to protect environmental
health.

For the past eight years, Paula has served as Counsel and Advocacy Director for WaterLegacy, a much-awarded Minnesota environmental non-profit. Some of her recent publications include Pipelines, Power Lines & Organic Farms, Mercury, Mining and the Clean Water Act, and Tribal Authority to Protect Water Resources and Reserved Rights under Clean Water Act Section 401.
