Dr. Fred Boehrer is an adjunct professor of Peace Studies at Siena College. He and his wife Diana Conroy are the founders of Emmaus House of Hospitality, a Catholic Worker house that was opened in 1996 in Albany, NY.

They do not receive a salary but exist in voluntary poverty, practice nonviolence and offer works of mercy. They receive no government assistance.
Come hear Fr. Bob and Fred talk about a variety of social justice issues along with a variety of volunteers from different resources. Hear about what is being done and find ways that you too can contribute and make a difference.
