BYH to the people in "the jungle" with megaphones. Does it make you feel like a big man to constantly berate and say...

Workshop will promote peace


Saturday, February 3, 2018

Jesus said, "Blessed are the peacemakers." Many of us have worked our whole lives to promote world peace. And it now appears we are at place of great danger to that peace.

Donald Trump's recent comments concerning a possible nuclear strike on North Korea are deeply troubling. How have we come to this? What has happened to our nation's great tradition of diplomacy?

A group of us from the local community are working to bring a tried and true peace and justice movement to Greenville. It is called Friends Committee on National Legislation, which is a Quaker vision of collective political action.

Maya Zwerling, the national organizing manager for the Advocacy Team movement, is hoping to come to Greenville on Feb. 27 to present a workshop starting at 6 p.m. She will teach us how to do grassroots lobbying with our senators and representatives.

The topic for this year's Advocacy Teams is "Preventing Nuclear War with North Korea." She will teach us proven techniques on how to engage our elected representatives in effective and respectful communication skills.

In order for Maya to come to Greenville we need 15 people to register for the free workshop. Go here to register: https://act.fcnl.org/event/advocacy-teams_attend/312
