– On Wed., March 24 at 11 AM ET, check out
Peacebuilding on the Korean Peninsula: U.S. and European Perspectives. Since
the end of the Korean War in 1953, peace and reconciliation on the Korean Peninsula
have remained elusive despite being the stated goals of both South Korea and
North Korea. However, other similar conflicts from the Cold War period—most
notably between West and East Germany—have largely been resolved. Sponsored by the United States Institute of
Peace, hear from Frank Aum, U.S. Institute of Peace; Tongfi Kim, Brussels
School of Governance; Eun-Jeung Lee, Freie University Berlin; and Joseph Yun,
U.S. Institute of Peace. Visit https://www.usip.org/events/peacebuilding-korean-peninsula-us-and-european-perspectives.

– Learn how to Demilitarize the Budget at an Advocacy
Training on Wed., March 24 from 3 to 4 PM.
Each year, about two-thirds of the United States’ budget is spent on
militarized responses to problems—including the Pentagon, abusive immigration
enforcement, and policing. This money could have had a transformative impact on
things that would actually make our communities healthy, safe, and strong—like
education, universal health care, or peacebuilding. Learn why the United States’ militarized
budget is such a problem, how the budget and appropriations process works, and
how you can get involved in the call to move money out of militarism and into
our communities! The speakers are Grace
Kindeke, AFSC, Ashik Siddique, National Priorities Project, and Savannah
Wooten, Public Citizen. The moderator is
Tori Bateman, AFSC. This event is
sponsored by American Friends Service Committee in partnership with many
others. Register at www.bit/ly/demilitarizebudget.
– The Interfaith Immigration Coalition
[firstname.lastname@example.org] on Wed., March 24 a 5 PM ET is hosting A
Faithful Response at the Border: Welcoming Migrant Children and Asylum Seekers
on Facebook. There is a lot of news right now about asylum seekers, especially
children, who are at the U.S. Border. But this situation did not come about
overnight; it has been building for years, exasperated by cruel and inhumane
policies and an outdated immigration system that denies our shared
humanity. If there is a crisis at the
border, it is our government’s failure to enact a pro-active and compassionate
response. While the governmental response has been lacking, people of faith
have been present at the southern border for decades and the prophetic witness
and moral voice continue to be urgently needed.
