The Faith & The Common Good Lecture is a continuing education event at SFTS that offers an opportunity for alumni, students, friends of the seminary, and the wider community to hear from and become inspired  by people of faith who serve others through their vocations.

Dr. David Batstone will be this year's featured speaker. He is the Professor of Ethics at the University of San Francisco (USF) School of Management, and President and Co-founder of the nonprofit organization Not For Sale, which combats human trafficking throughout the globe.

Batstone teaches USF's Capstone Course in Ethics, and serves as Co-Professor in the Erasmus Program, which is a living-learning community that explores, over the course of a school year, what social justice means within the US and in communities around the globe. As a widely published author in both academia and the popular press, Dr. Batstone's five books address ethical issues at the crossroads of politics, business, economy, and spirituality.

As President and Co-founder of the Not For Sale anti-human trafficking campaign, Professor Batstone has connected business leaders, heads of community, celebrities, and students, to raise awareness of the 27 million human slaves in the world today. His efforts have inspired thousands of modern day abolitionists to join together in open source activism to save humanity from slavery.

Not For Sale uses business creation, supply chain evaluation, and aftercare aid to fight modern-day slavery around the world. By creating enterprise opportunities for vulnerable communities, offering social services to survivors and those at-risk to human trafficking, and evaluation the use of forced labor in mainstream supply chains, Not for Sale works to ensure that no one is for sale.
