Presentation and Discussion: Carolyn Coe

Carolyn Coe, committed peace-activist and journalist, will share stories from the young folks in Kabul and Honduras where she has recently visited. Carolyn has the unique ability to witness suffering, validate those whose trust she unfailingly gains, and come home to tell the stories that she has heard first hand. This is her commitment to these beautiful young people who want desperately to create lives of meaning and non-violent resistance. Please join us to honor Carolyn's commitment and her Afghan and Honduran friends' courage and resistance to violence and injustice.
