Sandra Sullivan-Dunbar

Sandra Sullivan-Dunbar is Associate Professor of Christian Ethics at Loyola University Chicago, where her research and teaching focus on feminist ethics, economic ethics, family ethics and theories of justice. She holds a Master of Public Policy from the University of California at Berkeley, a Master of Divinity from the Jesuit School of Theology at Santa Clara University, an MA in Ethics and Social Theory from the Graduate Theological Union, and a doctorate in Religious Ethics from the University of Chicago. She is the author of Human Dependency and Christian Ethics, published by Cambridge University Press (2017). In her prior career, Sullivan-Dunbar worked as a policy advocate, specializing in health care policy with an emphasis on access for low-income and uninsured persons. She is active as a volunteer District Captain with the Sister District Project, an organization that emerged after the 2016 presidential election. Sister District pairs the activist resources of safely “blue” (Democratic) areas of the country to work on state legislative races that present an opportunity to flip Republican seats blue. Their goal is to reverse the extreme gerrymandering that has occurred since 2010 and to restore democratic (small d) processes.
