Monday, October 22, 7-9pm, Columbus Mennonite Church, 35 Oakland Park Ave.

Peggy Gish will share from her summer’s work in the Kurdish region of northern Iraq. Hear more about the current situation in Iraq, the work of local people who are working for justice and peace, and how civilians are affected by the Turkish and Iranian Military bombings of their villages.

Join in the question-and-answer conversation time.

For the past 16 years, Peggy has been doing international peacemaking and human rights work, mostly in Iraq, but also in Palestine, through the organization “Christian Peacemaking Teams.” She has also worked in northeastern Nigeria with those affected by Boko Haram. She has been especially interested in interfaith efforts in these countries for reconciliation and social justice.

Peggy has written two books based on her work in Iraq with the Christian Peacemaker Teams: Iraq: A Journey of Hope and Peace (2004) and Walking Through Fire: Iraqis’ Struggle for Justice and Reconciliation (2013), which will be available for purchase at this event.

Free and open to the public.

Hosted by Central Ohioans for Peace.
