Loras Hosting Two Political Engagement Events in April

Loras College will host two political engagement presentations in April that are free to the public.

Lee J. Strang, Stoepler Professor of Law & Values at the University of Toledo College of Law, will present a lecture based on his book, Originalism’s Promise: 

A Natural Law Account of the American Constitution. In the midst of debates over how Americans should interpret our Constitution, Professor Strang will provide the first Catholic natural law justification for an originalist interpretation of the U.S. Constitution, drawing on thinkers from Aquinas to Robert George. Professor Strang’s lecture will help all Americans better understand their own Constitution and show why their faithfulness to it, its Framers, and its legal system, is supported by sound reasons. 

Professor Strang will speak in the Loras College Alumni Campus Center Ballroom on Friday, April 22 at 7 p.m.

Kevin O’Brien (’12) will serve as the speaker for the Ahlgren International Affairs Lecture. A global social worker, O’Brien will speak about his extensive International experience with organizations such as the Peace Corps, Catholic Relief Services, Partners in Health and others.

The Ahlgren International Affairs Lecture is an annual event at Loras that highlights the importance of global engagement.

O’Brien’s lecture will be held in the Loras College Alumni Campus Center Ballroom on Monday, April 25 at 7 p.m. It will also be available on Zoom.
