Humanitarian Bo Lozoff to Speak at PSU July 18

July 6th, 2007 by Adam

Humanitarian Bo Lozoff will give a motivational speech July 18th at noon in Heritage Commons on the campus of Plymouth State University.

Bo Lozoff and wife Sita are the co-founders of the Human Kindness Foundation and its award winning Prison Ashram Project. Bo’s first book, We’re All Doing Time, is now in its 13th printing and was hailed by the Village Voice as “one of the ten books everyone in the world should read.” The book has been lauded by prison staff and prisoners alike as one of the most helpful books ever written for true self-improvement and rehabilitation.

Mark Fischler of PSUs Criminal Justice department believes Lozoff’s message can help people lead a more meaningful life.

“Bo’s last 30 years have been devoted to people who the rest of society have given up on,” said Fischler. “He works primarily with the prison population, and his message and teachings allows them to develop dignity and responsibility, all done with fearless compassion. The tools Bo shares with prisoners are the very tools and keys to our own meaningful existence.”

The Lozoff’s have been cited for numerous humanitarian awards, including the prestigious Temple Award for Creative Altruism from the Institute for Noetic Sciences. Bo holds an honorary doctorate from the Chicago Theological Seminary and was also named by Utne Reader as one of America’s 100 Spiritual Visionaries. His sincerity and commitment have earned the respect of hundreds of thousands of prisoners and others around the world who feel inspired to follow a similar path of living simply and joyfully caring about others.

Lozoff’s PSU appearance is part of a tour of prison visits, public talks and playing music in every state in the country. The event is free and open to the public.
