Mending the World - Margaret Hopper Taylor Seminars Challenging Domestic Violence
Who might enjoy and benefit from the first in a series of seminars challenging domestic violence being offered in the Women’s Center on Saturday?
Perhaps, anyone who wants to be part of ending and preventing domestic violence. In this interactive seminar, “Gender Respect: New Directions in Preventing Domestic Violence”, led by Rus Funk will address some of the path-breaking work he and Menswork are doing to build positive self-image and modes of interaction with adolescent males, and make the connection between this work and the prevention of domestic violence explicit. The seminar takes place
Saturday, March 12
9 – 12
in the Women’s Center
lunch follows the seminar
Dr. Gay Byron, Suendam Birinci, and Dr. Nancy Fuchs-Kreimer will speak at the Fifth Annual Katie Geneva Cannon Lecture and Interfaith Conference A Woman's Voice
Dr. Nancy Fuchs-Kreimer shared the following link with us this morning http://www.huffingtonpost.com/nancy-fuchs-kreimer/park51-should-not-be-comp_b_690452.html; she warned us that it is “not on the issue of women, but it speaks directly to the Interfaith context of our gathering and is of topical interest.” It is indeed of topical interest — the topic of the increasingly nationalized and politicized question of the Park51 Islamic center planned near Ground Zero in New York. Her quiet words of wisdom remind us of the many, deep reasons an interfaith conference matters.
Dr. Nancy Fuchs-Kreimer will participate as presenter and workshop leader in the Fifth Annual Katie Geneva Cannon Lecture and Interfaith Conference “A Woman’s Voice,” Sunday, 9/12 and Monday, 9/13. We are looking forward to seeing many readers, friends, and neighbors there.
