As one of our most faithful supporters, we are excited to extend to you an invitation to our 2017 Perth Draw the Line fundraising dinner.
As you know, ACL is determined to continue to be your voice for values in Parliament and the law courts. However, to see your vision for a more just and compassionate society, we are in need of continued funding and resource; because your freedom of speech, religion - and more, is under increasing attack.
We are honoured to be joined by Professor Margaret Somerville as our special guest this year.
Margaret Somerville is Samuel Gale Professor of Law Emerita, Professor Emerita in the Faculty of Medicine, and Founding Director Emerita of the Centre for Medicine, Ethics and Law at McGill University, Montreal, where she taught from 1978 to 2016, when she returned to Sydney to become Professor of Bioethics in the School of Medicine at The University of Notre Dame Australia.
No stranger to controversy resulting from the sensitive and divisive ethical issues she addresses, Professor Somerville, is recognised as a preeminent public intellectual in Bioethics and has extensive experience in all forms of media and she is widely published on the questions of euthanasia and same sex marriage.
We will be giving all our guests an opportunity to invest into the future of ACL during the dinner. In light of this, I’d like to encourage you to prayerfully consider what your contribution to the ongoing financial requirements of ACL will be, as we work to continue to be your voice for values.
As well as raising much needed funds for the ministry, the night promises to be a great time of friendship, fellowship and mutual encouragement in the battles we face together.
