You are invited to see photos, hear the stories and soak up the experiences of three Bay Area residents who recently participated in the Fellowship of Reconciliation’s August 2008 delegation to Colombia. They spent time with threatened human rights defenders in Bogota, met with mothers of the disappeared in Medellin and spent a few days in San Jose de Apartadó, a community that has taken a courageous stand for peace and non-violence amidst Colombia's brutal conflict. The evening will consist of an interactive discussion of the conflict in Colombia and its relationship with the United States, how state impunity is constructed and maintained, and how grassroots groups are working across borders to challenge it.

Light snacks will be provided and raffle tickets will be sold! All proceeds will benefit the Fellowship of Reconciliation. Wheelchair accessible.
