Film: Disturbing the Peace

2:00 pm - 4:30 pm @ Red River Theater, Concord

Disturbing the Peace follows former enemy combatants – Israeli soldiers from elite units and Palestinian fighters, many of whom served years in prison – who have joined together to challenge the status quo. The film reveals their transformational journeys from soldiers committed to armed battle to nonviolent peace activists, leading to the creation of Combatants for Peace.

The movie challenges …us to understand the narratives we live within…and decide what role we are going to play in creating a more humane world…and it starts with our willingness to disturb the peace.

Tickets are $10 each and may be purchased HERE. 

Presented by: NH Friends of Combatants for Peace

Sponsored by: J Street, World Affairs Council, NH Peace Action Education Fund, Andru Volinsky of Bernstein Shur Law Firm

Discussion afterward led by Combatants for Peace co-founders and Nobel Peace Prize nominees, Sulaiman Khatib and Chen Alon.

Interfaith March for Peace & Justice

- @ Nationwide

The Interfaith March for Peace & Justice is a national event that will be held on April 29, 2018 and begin simultaneously in cities and towns across the country. Initiated by the Safe Alliance for Interfaith Leaders and co-sponsored (on the local level) by the North Columbus Friends Meeting, this event has garnered interest across the country; sister marches are in the early stages of planning in over a dozen cities at this time. We would like to invite Friends who are interested to consider bringing this event to their communities. 

The purpose of this peaceful, non-partisan event is to share the following unifying message: we affirm equal justice and religious liberty for all and we condemn all acts of discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or violence against people based on their religion, race, or place of origin. If you’d like to learn more, please visit our website at interfaithmarch.com or email betty@interfaithmarch.com. It only takes one person to get the ball rolling to organize a march in any given location. (We don’t care how large or small it may be). Thank you for your consideration. 

NHPA will lead the organizing for the event in Concord.  If you are interested in helping organize a sister march in your, please email Will@nhpeaceaction.org or Doreen@nhpeaceaction.org.
