4th Annual Berrigan-McAlister Award Ceremony: 
Celebrating the Los Angeles Catholic Worker (details)*

Register now for DePaul's 4th Annual Berrigan-McAlister Award Ceremony.  Named after Daniel Berrigan, SJ, his brother Philip, and Philip’s wife Elizabeth McAlister, the award was created to honor those whose commitment to "gospel nonviolence" resists injustice, transforms conflict, fosters reconciliation, and seeks justice and peace for all. 

​This year's recipient is the Los Angeles Catholic Worker (LACW). LACW has provided food, shelter, and support to poor and unhoused persons in Los Angeles for over 50 years. It also engages in nonviolent campaigns and civil disobedience focusing on issues ranging from local injustices and racism to war, militarism, climate destruction, and anti-immigrant policies.
