May 28th meeting – Peace and justice

Our daily headlines are filled with accounts of conflicts and violence from the Middle East to Central Africa, and here in the U.S. in cities like Baltimore and Ferguson. Research has shown that violence containment costs the U.S. over 1.7 trillion dollars annually. Margaret Koren, a longtime peace activist and Windsor resident, will present an alternative approach to the current, ineffective policies at 7p.m. on May 28 at the Round Table Pizza, 8499 Old Redwood Hwy, in Windsor.

Ms. Koren’s program, “Peace is Not a Season, It is a Way of Life,” will focus on five key peacebuilding cornerstones, part of national initiative organized by the Peace Alliance, which offer positive solutions to reduce worldwide conflict. She will touch on peacebuilding methods being used in the community and schools, as well as restorative justice approaches in the justice system and ways to foster international and personal peace.

Pizza will be served and the meeting is open to the public
