Seniors for Peace invites the public to a storytelling event on Monday, October 29 at Jennings Auditorium. Rebecca Burkholder and Blaine Derstine, MCC Area Directors for Central Southern and Northeast Asia, will share from their experiences working to build peace by breaking down walls and working across divides.
Peacebuilding undergirds all of MCC’s work. What does that look like in real-life situations? In Asia, MCC works to nurture relationships between different religious and ethnic groups, including Muslims, Christians, Hindu and Buddhists. Hear what is being done to break through the stereotypes and rhetoric and work for peace.
