War, occupation, and domination will not make us safe. Let's make the Road Map to Peace in the Middle East more than a public relations gesture. Come help us create an alternative voice to AIPAC (the pro-Ariel Sharon lobby) that seeks to undermine any process that would end the Occupation of the West Bank and Gaza and create a lasting peace based on justice and security for both sides. Please support us by coming, spreading the word, and/or signing our online Tikkun Proposal for Middle East Peace

Another Nation/Another World
Be Not Afraid
an interfaith service honoring those in the religious and lay communities who have taken risks for justice and peace
ANOTHER NATION/ANOTHER WORLD:
Be Not Afraid is conceived as an antidote to the culture of fear that has pervaded the American social and political landscape since 9/11 and that has facilitated constriction of our civil liberties, adoption of pre-emptive war as the baseline principle of our foreign policy, and prosecution of the war against and occupation of Iraq.
Bracketed by music and poetry, the three keynote speakers will be asked to discuss the religious, cultural or personal motivations of their work for peace and justice. In addition to the keynote speakers, clergy from seven or eight religions will discuss courage, risk and fear through the lenses of their traditions.
3:00 pm to 7:00 pm
