The United Nations Association of Southwestern Connecticut presents the first Ruth Steinkraus Cohen Memorial Lecture. Dr. Mary Evelyn Tucker will discuss how to inspire people to preserve, protect and restore the Earth community. As co-founder of the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology, Dr. Tucker seeks to identify different perspectives among the religions of the world to find comprehensive and collaborative solutions to our global environmental crisis in partnership with scientists and policy makers. Her talk and the discussion afterward will provoke questions and inspiration drawn from her award winning film, Journey of the Universe.
The Southwestern Connecticut Chapter of the United Nations Association has been promoting the ideals and work for the United Nations for over 60 years. Its founder, Ruth Steinkraus Cohen, worked tirelessly to support the UN. She established June Day, when Westport welcomes the staff and delegates of the UN, in 1965. The downtown bridge is named in her honor and the member nations flag fly each United Nations Day. The Chapter plans to bring a topical and thought-provoking speaker each year to the Westport Library on United Nations Day.
