11th ANNUAL GOLDEN WEST COLLEGE PEACE CONFERENCE 2017
“A Sustainable Peace: Equity, Equality, and Environmental
Interdependence in the 21st Century”
What’s the role of Equity in:
Race, Gender, ethnicity and Religion?
Economic and Environmental Justice?
Compassionate Food Democracy?
Establishing Trauma sensitive Policies in Institutions?
Living harmoniously within the inter-species collective wisdom?
Perpetuating violence and detracting from Empathy?
In Supporting Optimum health for the most vulnerable?
Law, Criminal Justice and U.S. Prison system?
The 2017 Peace Conference inquiries into critical issues of our time that lead to oppression, injustice, and violence. Climate change, economic inequality, and social justice concerns revolving around race, gender, and religion require a deep examination of the systems operating in our society. This conference is an opportunity to re-envision those systems by digging into cutting edge solutions and ideas that acknowledge the present crisis, anticipate the future without cynicism, and channel the justified dissatisfaction with the status quo into positive action. Via dialogues, TED style presentations, and artistic expressions led by the most incredible researchers, educators, artists, advocates, students, and seekers, the conference will examine the relationship between equity and our deeper values and will explore the practicalities of a society that is sustainable, interdependent, and equitable for all.
The registration includes: Vegan breakfast, Vegan lunch, conference materials and gifts, in addition to FREE parking in Lot "B and C." This is a ZERO waste event. Please do not bring plastic water bottles.
