The World Economic Forum recently shared some of Pinker's conclusions: https://agenda.weforum.org/2016/01/are-levels-of-global-violence-falling/
Steven Pinker's The Better Angels of Our Nature documents that, despite our sense that violence around us is escalating, human society has experienced a remarkable decline in violence. Pinker then offers a hypothesis as to why this is the case.

Weekly, I share links to four articles that I found significant, accompanied by a poem. Our lives are enriched by seeing better. One article comes from the world of photography, a discipline intent upon shaping how we see. Another article takes up technology, hence seeing something of the future. Another takes up an aspect of our common life, seeing more clearly together. Another article refers to faith, seeing the unseen. Finally, the weekly pos...

When Mark Zuckerberg made Vaclav Smil's "Energy: A Beginner's Guide" the fourteenth selection in his #AYearOfBooks , Zuckerberg also cited Gates' recommendation as one that influenced him to include the 2006 book in his reading.

The New York Times recently had a lovely article about Neruda's three houses: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/20/travel/pablo-neruda-chile.html I highly recommend the article, and I even more highly recommended the homes!

Introduction
I am the campaign manager for The Human Thread campaign, an effort to help Catholics reflect on where their clothing comes from and to lead action and solidarity with international garment workers. The campaign was inspired by the 2013 collapse of the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh. The devastating event killed 1,133 garment workers, and exposed the wide range of abuses connected to the sourcing of clothing. I live in Milwaukee, WI.

  • The Human Thread Campaign
    Campaign Manager, 2016 - present
    The Human Thread aims to raise consciousness and empower Catholics to advocate for the plight of the garment workers. Following the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh on April 24, 2013, when 1133 garment workers were killed, we who participate in this globalized economy cannot ignore the wide range of abuses connected to the sourcing of clothes. I am responsible for organizing all campaign activities from the pilot phase to scaling phase. Together with the Human Thread steering committee and subgroups, I oversee the development and execution of strategies leading to the launching of a national campaign.
