One of a series of Inspired Pasta, Courageous Conversations talks, Providence Friends Meeting presents this talk by two trainers in Alternatives to Violence Projects (AVP).
In Gaza, West Bank, Israel…. Can Alternatives to Violence Projects (AVP) help reduce violent flashpoints and promote healing within, and ultimately between, these different cultures?
Come join us for a journey into the heart of the human crisis besetting the lands of Israel and Palestine. Can we envision a more peaceful future there?
Joseph Moore and Joseph DiGarbo, members of Lancaster Friends Meeting, have led AVP trainings and workshops with children, adults and local organizations in Palestine and Israel. Their goal: develop nonviolent conflict management skills within these communities so that eventually there can be reconciliation between them.
These two dedicated Quakers will enlighten us about the current realities on the ground in these territories, their close partnership with American Friends Service Committee workers there, and their plans and hopes for the future.
Join us for an Inspired Pasta lunch at 12:30, served by the Peace and Social Action Culinary Team, followed by the presentation and discussion at 1pm.
