Published on April 28th, 2016 in Fair Share Housing Development

Civil rights advocate Peter J. O’Connor says his Holy Cross years inspired a lifelong crusade for social justice. “My whole commitment to the implementation of moral values came from my time at Holy Cross,” Peter O’Connor told Katharine Whittemore in the latest issue of Holy Cross Magazine. “There was such a spirit of camaraderie there.”

Peter said he is grateful for all the support shown by his “Crusader” classmates. Go to page 7 of our newsletter to see the most recent list of Holy Cross classmates who are supporting Fair Share Housing Development’s education program.
