Ambrose Women for Social Justice

The legacy of peace and justice initiatives at St. Ambrose University anchors Ambrose Women for Social Justice's programs in a historical context marked by faith, scholarship, and activism.

AWSJ promotes education and action for human rights and for the fair and responsible use of resources. AWSJ recognizes the need to identify, assess, and address the ways in which injustice impacts women and girls, men and boys, and to seek solutions based on interdisciplinary and gender-responsive, gender-sensitive approaches.

Since 2004, AWSJ has sponsored an annual lecture series, bringing national and international speakers to campus, to highlight and discuss some of the most important social and economic justice issues of the day.
