It's an idea from St. Augustine, that the creating is still going on." In efforts to "create a more just world, staff members at the center look at what are the causes for economic poverty. We do research and coalition building." The focus is on economic is- sues and human rights issues, including the death penalty, prisons, militarism, nuclear is- sues.

We hope to raise consciousness; then those people [in political lead- ership] will act to try to make their area a more just place." Sister Desautels has been with the center for 10 years. Her training is in theology and reli- gious studies, and she has been on the faculty at St. Mary-of-the- Woods College. She also worked at two parishes in the Diocese of Evansville, at St. Joseph, Jasper, and St. Peter, Linton. She says she is spurred on in her work by a "passion for the many injustices that are in the world," and that her conscious- ness was raised about the time of Vatican II, when Church teaching focused "so much around social justice." The U.S. intervention in Central America in the 1980s caught her "attention and out- rage, what U.S. policy was doing to innocent victims in Nicaragua." Her work on U.S. interven- tion policies in Central America and other parts of the world provided opportunities for her to serve as in delegations to Nicaragua, Guatemala, E1 Sal- vador, the Middle East and Haiti. In the spring of 1991, she was part of a women's peace activist group taking relief aid to victims of the Gulf Was in Iraq and the West Bank. She noted that the "victims of that war were primarily women and children. Over 500,000 people have died since the war." In 1995, she traveled to China for the Fourth World Conference on Women. She explains that all of her work is done primarily because of "my passion for a more just world.
