Combatants for Peace -- the only organization worldwide in which former fighters on both sides of an active conflict have laid down their weapons, choosing to work together for peace and justice -- is coming to speak in Providence.
They will be telling their personal stories of transformation from violence to nonviolence, and sharing the work that they are doing to end the occupation and bring peace to their homeland. We will have two speakers: one Israeli and one Palestinian, and also will be screening a short clip of their recent, award winning documentary: Disturbing the Peace.
WHEN: Sunday, April 29 at 4pm
WHERE: Providence Jewish Community Center | 401 Elmgrove Ave, Providence, RI 02906
