"Today’s peace movement has a new imperative: to mirror the change it is looking for in the world and not to wait for others to deliver it. “Be the change” has become a central motif of the emerging peace movement because evolution now requires a transformation of inner consciousness matched with a capacity to reach measurable social goals and to master daunting political challenges. We have begun to see that we cannot address the problem of violent aggression without changing fundamental beliefs and addressing the cultural and structural underpinnings of violence." Excerpt, Cultivating Peace by James O'DeaJames will be signing books at the event.
The Peace Alliance is a dedicated team of organizers and advocates throughout the United States, taking the work of peacebuilding from the margins of society into the centers of national discourse and policy priorities. Advocacy, education and mobilization are the tools we use with demonstrated effectiveness. Join us for an intimate afternoon to learn about the New Face of The Peace Alliance and the many new faces of the peace movement.
"This organization is on the leading edge... Through your organization the word spreads out among the people, so it becomes a more popular thing to be counted as one of the pilgrims, trying to lead us to this promised land of peace." ~ Walter Cronkite
