5 Myths About Peace in a Turbulent World

Institute for the Horn of Africa Studies welcomes

Melanie Greenberg and Naomi Desmond Tutu to Minnesota talking about the commitment and tools needed to lay the foundation for true reconciliation in a turbulent world. 

It's easy to feel powerless in the face of violence sweeping the world--from Syria to Somalia to El Salvador, and closer to home in cities like Baltimore and Ferguson. The field of peace-building offers new approaches to conflict, war, and violence, and presents hope in often surprising ways. Please join us for a discussion with:

Melanie Greenberg, the President and CEO of the Alliance for Peace-building, who will dispel stubborn myths about war and peace, and will highlight the courageous and inventive peace-builders working to resolve conflict in the most turbulent areas of the world.

Naomi Desmond Tutu, Diversity consultant and Human Rights Activist will shed light on what it will take to build a strong foundation for a true reconciliation to take hold in communities in conflict. 

Event will be in the Humphrey School Conference Center Room 180 from 6-8pm.
