Campaign Nonviolence Southern California’s week of Nonviolent Awareness Raising and Public Actions started off with a bang. The Interfaith Celebration of International Day of Peace (See slides above) was sponsored by The Sisters of Social Service, Catholic and Muslim Women in Dialogue, Pax Christi Southern California. and Campaign Nonviolence. Kathy Kelly of Voices for Creative Nonviolence held us spellbound as she spun stories about life in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Gaza. We were challenged and inspired to work harder for a world that does not include war, poverty, or environmental destruction. Kathy’s talk was followed by an Interfaith Panel: Salam Al-Marayati, President of Muslim Affairs Council; Rabbi Susan Goldberg, Wilshire Boulevard Temple, Los Angeles; Rev. Chris Ponnet, Pastor, Chaplain, and Director of St. Camillus Center. Facilitated by Rt. Rev. Alexei Smith, Ecumenical and Interreligious Officer for the Los Angeles Archdiocese.
