Peace & Justice Conversations: American Friends of Combatants for Peace

July 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


For over seventy decades, war and violence have gripped the land we know as Israel and Palestine, polarized and deeply held opinions in the US make conversations to support an end to this violence charged and difficult. Combatants for Peace is an organization built from parallel structures on each side of this conflict, of people who have laid down their arms to seek a peaceful future.

Join Tiffany Goodwin-Van Camp who recently took over as Executive Director of American Friends of Combatants for Peace, for a discussion on how the message of peace, carried by former combatants for each side of this conflict has created a new model for opening hearts and minds and creating space for a path to a just and peaceful future.

About Tiffany: I started my career in Watts, LA, with gang “rivals” partnering to create peace in their community. I served South LA youth for ten years through mentorship programming, and wrote and launched a federally funded program for children with incarcerated parents and their incarcerated moms. For five years, I headed regional operations and quality improvement at a national organization that supports youth and adults recovering from addiction and mental health vulnerabilities. For four years, I led development and growth for a non-profit that empowers pregnant women experiencing homelessness. I also volunteer as a certified birth justice doula.

Throughout my career, my focus has been three-fold: to strengthen NGOs that serve the daily human rights of systematically marginalized people; to prioritize the voice, wisdom, and agency of those served; and to address the unjust systems that create the need for services. I’m grateful to have worked in the “field” and the “office” and am honored to bring my experience to advance the cause of Combatants for Peace (CFP).

About NHPA’s bi-weekly Zoom Peace & Justice Conversation Series: 2020’s upheavals brought us to a new moment of reckoning and possibility. How do we want to live in the world? What do we value? How can we make the changes we’ve been yearning for? NH Peace Action has been engaged in working for change for decades. We’d like to bring you into these conversations about issues and options for the future.  There is no charge to attend, but your contributions in any amount are greatly appreciated.
