The Blaikie-Knowles-Woodsworth Lecture (Virtual)

This special event has already taken place.


The Douglas Coldwell Layton Foundation for Social Democracy Lecture Series is taking place in major universities across Canada to inspire a new generation of community leaders and will feature dynamic experts in Canadian social democratic thought and organizing. 

We are thrilled to be able to invite you to our inaugural lecture series at the University of Winnipeg. Named after New Democratic MP and MLA and United Church Minister BIll Blaikie, this lecture series will emphasize the importance of faith, spirituality and compassion as the underpinnings of social democracy.

Our inaugural speaker, Professor Gary Dorrien, teaches social ethics, theology, and the philosophy of religion as the Reinhold Niebuhr Professor of Social Ethics at Union Theological Seminary and Professor of Religion at Columbia University, and is a leading historian of the social gospel movement.
