We are going to start a new Non-Violent Communication study group at the Peace Center in October. We use Marshall Rosenberg's book, Non-Violent Communication, as our text. Most of our Coordinating Council members have participated as well as our coordinator, and we are reaching out to our volunteers and members. Anyone is invited to attend.
Please contact Suzanne Ziglar at 255-4074 for more info and to sign up.
Please join us for a Peace Walk for the Mosque
Thursday, Oct. 30th at 5:30pm
Walk from the Albuquerque Center for Peace & Justice, 202 Harvard SE, 87106, to the Islamic Center of New Mexico, 1100 Yale SE, 87106. We will walk two blocks west on Silver, then take Yale to the ICNM. The walk is just under one mile long, and should take about 15 minutes.
Please bring a candle, flowers and/or messages of support. This is a family-friendly walk, so please bring your children! This is a teaching moment, as we respond to last Thursday's molotov cocktail hate crime with a gesture of good will, love and concern for our Muslim sisters and brothers in our community.
Chris Adams, Public Relations Director at the ICNM, has messaged Sue that the ICNM board welcomes our Peace Walk and that he would try to make sure that Imam Shafi is there and he said: "They (board members)want to have a reception prepared for the guests with food (or at least snacks) and drinks in the general-purpose (mixed gender) meeting room. I'll give you more details about that soon. "
We will present our statement of support to the imam there.
Please walk with us if you can, and please help spread the word.

People who traveled on the New Mexico Faith Coalition for Immigrant Justice tour to El
Paso/Juarez in April will tell about experiences meeting with the Border Patrol, immigrants
and deportees at the Wall and their interviews with people who serve them, including a
doctor, a lawyer, small library staff, volunteers at Annunciation House and others. (See page
5 for Lily Hansen’s personal reflections about her immersion experience.)
We want to take more people on tours to witness the border, become involved and inform
others about the horrendous conditions on our Southern Border. Come and help work at the
local, state and national levels to change this intolerable situation- the most important civil
rights issue in American today. If you wish, bring clothes or money to send to children
attempting to cross the border into the U.S. We need to work together to help protect the children arriving in the U.S. and to respond to their basic needs. Border immersion experiences help us to understand the root causes that compel children to flee their homes and come to the U.S.
Please join us Thursday, Aug. 21, 6-8pm at the Peace and Justice Center to learn more and lend a hand to help us in reaching out to these children. Refreshments will be served, contact Joanne Calkins 268-1733 or Mary Beth Howe (816) 516-1246 for info.

The news media paints a confusing picture of recent events in Palestine/Israel, about the tragic kidnapping of three Israeli teens, and the subsequent military crack down, killing and arrests by the Israeli on the Palestinian population of the West Bank and Gaza, and revenge kidnapping by unidentified Israelis. This forum seeks to get behind the confusing headlines to understand what has taken place and the terrible human and political impact it is having on the Palestinian population.
