Sponsors associated with Notre Dame University hosted a Zoom/YouTube live-streamed panel on “Racism is a Life Issue.” The principle that all individual human beings deserve protection from killing was prominent.

The related frustration that politics divides people into camps so that it’s harder to get the principles across was also discussed.
