Fr. Richard Ryscavage, director of the Center for Faith and Public Life, discusses the importance of this United Nations designated day, and explains how it speaks to the Fairfield project, ‘Impact India 2021.’ “It is imperative that we make a distinction between cultural differences and practices that call for our respect and acceptance, and violations of basic human rights that no appeal to cultural exception should be allowed to justify,” Ryscavage, a professor of sociology and international studies, said.
