12/01/2019 - Hands of Peace and Two Neighbors
Two Neighbors is a joint initiative retail boutique with handcrafted fashion items from Israeli and Palestinian women who wish to set conflicts aside and work together, both for their own benefit and to further the cause of peace. We invite you to join us to celebrate this venture, do some holiday shopping and save 20% when you come to the Hands of Peace event! Stop by between 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM and enjoy a display of vintage Palestinian dresses that embody narrative, art, tradition and culture. Collector Betsy Gilon, who founded Threading Peace, shares "The dresses tell the Palestinian narrative of the women who gave them life. I am but their voice, their storyteller. Beauty has a lens of its own and when we experience it, our world is in harmony. We can see with fresh eyes and an open heart." Enjoy refreshments, beautiful garments, music and a community in support of peace!

11/14/2019 - Building Peace Conference
Borders - whether physical, social or digital - and their creation are often at the centre of dynamics of oppression and can be root causes of violence. They can also be the centre of connection between divided communities.

The Build Peace 2019 conference will focus on peace, conflict, and the resilience fostered along borders, examining how social innovation through technology, storytelling, and the arts can both create and bridge divides.

How can technological, storytelling and artistic innovation increase physical, social and digital divides? How can technological, storytelling and artistic innovation help bridge physical, social and digital borders?

We will organise our collective inquiry across three sub-themes:

Physical borders: exploring the transformational role of technology, storytelling, and the arts on migration and movement across borders.
Social borders: exploring how technology, storytelling and the arts affect (positively or negatively) the demographic, cultural and political barriers between communities.
Digital borders: exploring emerging divides and growing polarisation in the online environment, as well as efforts at depolarisation and digital organizing against violence.

Admission/Cost: $125 - $350

10/26/2019 - Border Angels Caravan of Love
We will be meeting at our main office at Sherman Heights Community Center at 10:00 AM (subject to change). From here we will distribute donations between cars and carpool over the border to various shelters. Please specify whether you would like to be a passenger or a driver in your sign-up form. If you are signing up as a passenger please keep in mind that it is not 100% guaranteed that there will be availability in other cars. Also please bring $5 - $10 to give the driver for gas money.

Before we head across the border, our Caravan leader, Hugo, will usually say a few words. We suggest you bring some water and snacks for yourself because the day usually ends up running long. And of course, don't forget your passport!

It is most likely that your car insurance for driving in the United States is not valid in Mexico. You can simply and quickly purchase coverage for the day through AAA.

Also, please keep in mind when you are visiting these shelters, these are peoples' homes. So please use respect and tact, especially when photographing. Make sure you ask someone's permission before taking their picture, and particularly parents' permission before taking a picture of a child.

When signing up please provide a cellphone number for yourself, as well as an emergency contact.

Admission/Cost: FREE
