2009 Women PeaceMakers at Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice

19 Oct

Each year the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice selects four women peacemakers from around the world. The 2009 Women PeaceMakers will participate in a panel discussion where they will talk about the work they are doing in their respective countries for peace. The event will take place on Tuesday, October 20, 2009 from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice Theatre located at the University of San Diego. The event is free and open to the public.

The 2009 Women PeaceMakers:

The Women PeaceMakers Program “documents the stories and best practices of international women leaders who are involved in human rights and peacemaking efforts in their home countries.”

The San Diego Community has a rare opportunity to listen to the stories of these amazing women who are building peace through their grassroots efforts. I’ve attended some of the in-depth one on one conversations with each Woman PeaceMaker in October and I hope others have a chance to be inspired by attending the upcoming event on Oct. 20th, 2009 featured in this news flash.

Everything is connected

This blog is about the interconnectedness of all things from nature to politics and the vastness of the universe. Even science is proving more each day about our connections with each other and the universe. Visit us and explore the heart-to-heart connections we all have with each other and the power of even one person to create positive change within themselves and the world.

Here are some quotes from various individuals about the interconnectedness of all things:

Tug on anything at all and you’ll find it connected to everything else in the universe.
John Muir

We have a stake in one another … what binds us together is greater than what drives us apart, and … if enough people believe in the truth of that proposition and act on it, then we might not solve every problem, but we can get something meaningful done for the people with whom we share this Earth. ~ President Barack Obama
