After a successful fall series of counter-recruitment outreach during school lunch periods, we’re regrouping to focus on helping highschoolers become more engaged in their community and the issues that affect their lives. Join us for an organizing meeting on February 11 at 5:00 pm at the Peace Council office.

Report from Gaza

Cover concept: M. RyderCover concept: M. RyderThe 1.6 million people of Gaza have come through November’s bombings, unbowed. I was in Gaza earlier that month, with a delegation of 21 Americans sent by Interfaith Peace-Builders. Among the many groups of people we met from diverse sectors of Gazan society was the family of Ahmed Abu Dakka, a 13 year old boy shot and killed a day earlier by Israeli fire while he was playing soccer with friends. His killing was not only tragic for one family, but challenging for all who call Gaza their home.
