Speaker series to begin in Ithaca Oct. 1

A new interfaith speakers’ program in Ithaca will kick off Wednesday, Oct. 1, at 7 p.m. at the First Unitarian Church, located at the corner of Buffalo and Aurora streets.

Serving as keynote speaker will be Sheila Cassidy, noted human-rights activist. Cassidy is author of the international best-selling book Audacity to Believe and is best known as the young doctor who was imprisoned and tortured in Augusto Pinochet’s Chile for treating a wounded revolutionary.

The event also will mark Catholic Charities of Tompkins/Tioga’s inauguration of the Margaret Bigham Driscoll Justice and Peace Memorial Fund. This initiative will feature an annual interfaith forum, "Voices of Hope," featuring speakers who address current social-justice issues from a faith perspective.

For details, call Edie Reagan at Catholic Charities of Tompkins/Tioga, 607-272-5062, ext. 12
