Event Description:
Organized by: PIH | ENGAGE Philadelphia & PIH | TEMPLE
Sponsored by: The Feinstein Center for American Jewish History, CHAT-The Center for the Humanities at Temple, the Departments of Philosophy, Religion, Anthropology, Intellectual Heritage, and the Program in Jewish Studies.
Peter Singer is the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton, and a Professor at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at the University of Melbourne. Singer energized the animal rights movement with his classic Animal Liberation (1975) and humanitarian ethics with his "Famine, Affluence and Morality" (1971). Singer has been called "the most influential living philosopher" (the New Yorker) and his accessible prose and provocative challenges to our sense of moral obligation have been read by millions in the New York Times, in college classrooms, and by readers everywhere. Partners in Health | Engage is the grassroots wing of PIH, the renowned global health justice group founded by Paul Farmer, Ophelia Dahl, and Jim Kim. This event is the launch of PIH's local Philadelphia grassroots effort for educating, fundraising, and advocating for global health projects in Africa, Asia and the Americas--committed to the "preferential option for the poorest of the poor." Health care is a human right; come help make it so.
