Trinity begins weekly Wall Street Dialogues

Posted Jan 17, 2012

[Episcopal News Service] Trinity Wall Street’s Trinity Institute has begun Wall Street Dialogues, a series of conversations on the moral and ethical issues raised by the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Dialogues are held on Wednesdays at 1:05pm in Trinity Church and webcast live and on demand here.

In the first session of the series on Jan. 11, Gary Dorrien, of Union Theological Seminary, asked the question: “What is a just distribution of wealth and power?” as he discusses “Economic Crisis, Social Ethics, and Economic Democracy.”

The remaining four-session schedule is here.

The church in Lower Manhattan was criticized in December for refusing to allow OWS to use its Duarte Square property for a winter encampment, following the movement’s Nov. 15 eviction from Zuccotti Park near the church. Trinity cited a lack of facilities at the site and its lease agreement allowing the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council to use it for periodic art installations.
