Peacemaking in Perilous Times

Posted by Erin Bechtol

More than 100 people gathered at First Unitarian Church in Worcester, MA on Friday, September 15 to attend a peacemaking forum hosted by Worcester’s Center for Nonviolent Solutions. U.S. Representative James McGovern (D) opened the forum by telling the audience, “Promoting peace is important…peace means victory, war means failure.” Other speakers included Paul Walker, director of environmental security and sustainability at Green Cross International and expert on chemical and nuclear warfare; Selina Gallo-Cruz, cultural and political sociologist at College of the Holy Cross; and Claire-Schaeffer-Duffy, founding board member and education coordinator for the Center. She stressed the need for avoiding fear, practicing curiosity, and persevering. The event received excellent coverage by Cyrus Moulton in the Telegram & Gazette, one of Worcester’s respected local newspapers.
