We Can Support This Movement on The Peace Alliance Monthly Call!
Today - Tuesday, March 10th, 2020
Leslie de Muelles, our special guest, is an attorney consulting with Canadian tribal governments, and negotiating with the Canadian national government, to bring about the kind of systemic changes we have been dreaming about. More traditional, community-based forms of conflict resolution, prevention, and transformation are both on the horizon and under way, with thanks to her contributions!!
We were very fortunate that our Board President, Terry Mason, a highly trained professional guide in the manifestation of intentions. On this call, we created opportunities for callers to generate momentum together towards their highest goals for themselves and for all life. We explored what this can look like in terms of peacebuilding policies!!

Our January Guest, Jhody Polk, is a Peacebuilding Phenomenon. While spending 7 years incarcerated, she pursued a legal education working in the prison library, and in 2018 became a Soros Fellow - working to share that empowering education with other jailhouse lawyers and law clerks in prisons throughout the US. Meanwhile as a Peace Builder with the River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding, Jhody facilitates Community and Restorative Justice among marginalized communities of color and incarcerated populations in Florida. Her activities and achievements go on and on, and we are thrilled she joined us Tuesday!
We discussed the intersection of Peace and Justice, and how we can all bring more of both into our local communities!
