Catholics and Politics in Twentieth-Century San Francisco

Event detail
 

How did Catholic religious activism shape the language and outcome of San Francisco's debates about the common good? History professor William Issel will discuss the complex ways that the San Francisco Book coverCatholic Church and its lay men and women developed relationships with local businesses, unions, other community groups, and city government, and mobilized on this faith-based vision of the public interest.
