Alternatives to War and other area organizations are sponsoring a community rally for peace and justice, NOT IN OUR NAME, on October 6.

Keynote speakers: Ann and Bruce Huntwork of the Mennonite Central Committee who recently spent six months in Tehran and Mashhad,

Iran, where they worked with the Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) to report on material aid distributed to Afghan refugees and internally

displaced Afghans.
