peace of mind

Lisa Albrecht is a professor at the University of Minnesota, where she oversees an undergraduate minor in social justice. She embraces the notion of distributive justice, meaning “nobody gets seconds until everyone gets firsts.” Lisa sees the need to pursue peace and justice with “beloved community,” a term used by Martin Luther King, Jr. that encompasses not only one’s blood family, but also a circle of loved ones who care for one another and hold one another accountable. She believes that change builds from the bottom up, and she is encouraged by the way today’s social activists are engaging the community through social media and other tools that were not available to us a generation ago.
