Ten Days Redux–all the event links for Ten Days are here!

By @ 09/12/12 in News
The first night of Ten Days of Peace moved me in ways I wasn’t expecting. The speaker was profound and a room of people I know because of their commitment to ending violence in the city of Oakland and the Bay Area found themselves connected and committed to the people of Iran in ways I just didn’t see coming. I hope that all ten days of peace connect us viscerally, deeply and joyfully to each other and to our true selves as we seek to end violence. Here is a summary of the whole schedule–please come, please bring friends, and help us make this an irresistible movement.
The whole collection of the Oakland Peace Center’s Ten Days of Peace (including meaningful programs on the 22nd and 23rd) can be found at:
