Event Description

A remarkable international conference addressing deep human conflict issues. The Power of Compassion is relevant to many areas of Quaker work and witness. Our Peace and Equality testimonies call us to de-polarize global, inter-communal and inter-personal conflicts – including those within our own Quaker community.

At a time when polarization is the true culprit,
a multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary conference addressing fear-based belief systems, negative stereotypes, polarization, enemy images, scapegoating, and artificial barriers of distrust that divide us.

Join conservatives and liberals from across the social-political spectrum for an important, timely dialogue everyone needs to be part of.

David Hoffman (dhoffmanlaw@earthlink.net) lives near the conference site. I would like to hear from Quakers who may attend.
