Featuring Kristy Nabhan-Warren, Professor of Catholic Studies, University of Iowa
Professor Kristy Nabhan-Warren of the University of Iowa talks about what she learned when researching her forthcoming book, Meatpacking America: How Migration, Work, and Faith Unite and Divide the Heartland (UNC Press). She shares why religious accommodation is important, tells stories about how meatpacking workers bring their faith to their jobs, and ties her conclusions to the healing and empathy needed to move forward in the American public.

Her research focuses on U.S. Latinx Catholics in the United States, and her publications include The Virgin of El Barrio: Marian Apparitions, Catholic Evangelizing, and Mexican-American Activism (2005); Cursillos in America: Catholics, Protestants, and Fourth-Day Spirituality (2013); and Américan Woman: The Virgin of Guadalupe, Latinos/as and Accompaniment (2018).
