Speaking about peace is speaking about our truth

Speaking about peace is speaking about our truth

November 1, 2017 | Donations toward our 2017 #GivingTuesday campaign will go toward providing scholarships to bring Indigenous representatives from across the Americas to our 2018 Summer Conference in Keuka Park, NY. Each week will tell a different story of an Indigenous community BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz is connected with. Ten percent of all proceeds raised will also go toward disaster relief efforts in Mexico and Puerto Rico. We heard many voices express the importance of having continuous Indigenous participation in our events. Providing space to share resources, tactics, and experiences will help connect and empower Indigenous communities across the Americas. With the help of those in the BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz community, we can make this possible. If you believe in reaching across borders and boundaries to create peace rooted in justice, please consider making a donation toward our #GivingTuesday campaign.

Later, after returning to normal, I began to do homework, and at 1 o'clock in the morning for 14 minutes a horrible shake was felt. I immediately left the seminary, and as I went down the stairs, I remember what felt like thunder in the structure of the building. It was horrible. Immediately I contacted my family in Ensenada. I told them that I was well, but the first news I heard was that the building that is attached to my Hebrew teacher's house had collapsed, at which point I said: This is chaos. Read more »
