This week, WFYI's All Things Considered host Matt Pelsor is speaking with people who work to foster change in our region.

The Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, are Roman Catholic sisters who work for social justice.

In Terre Haute, Sister Jeanne Hagelskamp, with her peers on the group's Justice Coordinating Commission, works to raise awareness of climate change, but not only as an environmental concern. She tells WFYI's Matt Pelsor she works to teach its disproportionate impact on the world's poor.
