Thanks, David, I'll be passing this along to lots of people. I think a virtual Peace Summit will inspire a lot of interest.
Patricia Simon Comment by Patricia Simon on September 3, 2010 at 11:19am
During Peace Week we will celebrate "Peacebuilding", with jazz at the Acton Jazz Cafe, and with special guest, State Senator James Eldridge. He will read the Resolution, in support of the Youth PROMISE Act, which he will submit to the MA Legislature. We will demonstrate what peace looks like, with testimony from community projects and from Alternatives to Violence (AVP) workshops in prison. It was very moving to see inmates taking on leadership roles in transforming their lives.
