Peace of Mind Youth Retreat

8:00 am - 5:00 pm @ World Fellowship Center, Albany NH

For the last ten years, NH Peace Action, along with the World Fellowship center and the American Friends Service Committee NH program have invited High School aged youth to attend an overnight summit to network, build organizing skills, and explore the issues and challenges of the day.
Thanks to the Ann Slade Frey Charitable Trust, we have been able to offer this program free of charge, and seek to include youth from diverse perspectives and backgrounds.
We would like to hear from the youth ahead of the conference, what topics they would like to explore, and what organizing skills might be useful.
Please have interested youth get in touch with Will Hopkins will@nhpeaceaction.org.
Please forward this message around to High School aged youth who might be interested.  We hope to have a planning meeting during the week of August 13.

We are excited this year to present our Keynote Speaker Charmaine White Face.

She is an Oglala Tetuwan (Lakota language speaker) from the Oceti Sakowin (Great Sioux Nation) in North America.

She is known for her work in support of Native American rights, in particular as coordinator of the Defenders of the Black Hills, a volunteer environmental organization centered on efforts to encourage the United States government to honor the Fort Laramie Treaties of 1851 and 1868.[1][2]

She also works at the international level in support of recognition of human rights of indigenous peoples all over the world. She is the spokesperson for the Sioux Nation Treaty Council established in 1894. She was a participant in the prayer fast/hunger strike held in December 2004 in Geneva, Switzerland at the final meeting of the Intersessional Working Group on the Draft Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (WGDD). She has worked to preserve Bear Butte,[3][4] on monitoring of abandoned uranium mines, on “environmental remediation of hazardous waste ponds,”[5] and in the anti-nuclear power movement.[6] In Jan. 2013, she raised concerns about radiation exposure of South Dakota Army National Guard soldiers in the Buffalo Gap National Grassland.[  Charmaine White Face is also a columnist and freelance writer who has written for Indian Country Today, the Rapid City Journal, the Sioux Falls Argus Leader, and The Lakota Journal, and is a grandmother.
