5 Myths about Peace in a Turbulent World
Commitments and Tools Needed to Lay the Foundation for True Reconciliation

It is easy to feel powerless in the face of violence sweeping the world -- from Syria to Somalia to El Salvador, and closer to home in cities like Baltimore and Ferguson. The field of peace building offers new approaches to conflict, war and violence, and presents hope in often surprising ways. Please join us for a discussion with:

 Naomi Desmond Tutu, 

Diversity Consultant & Human Rights Activist

who sill dispel some stubborn myths about war and peace, and will highlight the courageous and inventive peace builders working to resolve conflict in the most turbulent areas of the world.
