Quakers and Peacemaking in the Great Lakes Region of Africa
May 21, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
On May 21 at 6:30 pm (join us for dinner preceding the event at 5:30), David Bucura, African Great Lakes initiative (AGLI) Coordinator, will present about his work with AGLI as the organization focuses on promoting peace, reconciliation, community building, conflict management, and trauma-healing at the grassroots level in the Great Lakes region of Africa. AGLI believes the people who understand the needs of the community best are those who live there. AGLI partners with local religious or non-governmental organizations that focus one or more of these areas. To achieve these goals, AGLI’s partners utilize Alternatives to Violence workshops, Healing and Rebuilding Our Communities workshops, and Transformative Meditation, among other approaches.
Join us for a potluck dinner at 5:30 pm. Please bring a labeled dish-to-pass, or if time or budget make bringing a dish a hardship, please be our guest! This event is free and open to all.
