Make a Difference 

Last April, the new Center for Justice and Sustainability at William Jewell College introduced itself to Kansas City by throwing a benefit rock show, at which patrons got to choose what local charity their cover charge would help. Today and tomorrow, the center invites the curious and the green-hearted to its Summit on Justice and Sustainability. In keeping with the theme, "24 Hours to a Better World," organizers will set a 24-hour clock today at 1 p.m. While it runs, participants get to attend workshops, listen to inspirational lectures and think hard about environmental, political and economic issues on a global and a community scale. Bridging the Gap founder Robert J. Mann gives the keynote address; Ellis Jones and Brett Johnson, co-authors of The Better World Handbook: Small Changes That Make a Big Difference, lead activities. Registration costs $25 and includes four meals and a copy of The Better World. The campus is located at 500 College Hill in Liberty. See jewell.edu for more information.
