Social Justice Exhibit in Las Cruces

You are invited to a locally-created, designed, and built museum exhibit: “Trotando Pasos Ajenos: Social Justice & Inequalities in the Borderlands.”

The exhibit will be on display from October 6, 2017 – January 6, 2018 at the Branigan Cultural Center, 501 N. Downtown Main Street. 

Lutheran Campus Ministry at NMSU, a ministry of Peace Lutheran, drafted a letter of support for this exhibit to The Philip N. Knutson Endowment.  The Philip N. Knutson Endowment in Lutheran Campus Ministry provides special funding for programs, exhibits, and conferences that address timely life issues and concerns facing Christians in higher education, including the subject of human sexuality and the Church.  The Phillip N. Knutson Endowment is administered through St. Olaf College, College Ministry Office.  Pr. Jared Carson said, “As Lutheran Christians, we make a commitment in baptism to serve all people, following the example of Jesus and to strive for justice and peace in all the world.  I am so pleased to support the NMSU professors and exhibit creators – Dr. Dulcinea Lara & Dr. Nicholas Natividad.  Their exhibit provides a forum to explore injustice in the borderland, so that we can more clearly focus on striving for justice and peace in all the world.  In theological terms, it is the proper work of the law and the gospel.”
