Peace Walks and Peace Talks: Building Peace in Colombia from the Ground Up

Saturday, Mar 22, 2014, 11:00 am

With the Colombian government and the FARC guerrilla group at the negotiating table, there is real hope for an end to the war in Colombia. After fifty years of unspeakable violence, peace in Colombia shimmers on the horizon.  But peace must be built from the ground up. This workshop will bring visionary peacebuilders from Colombia to talk with you about the peace process and how respect for the rights of victims of violence to truth and justice are essential in order to construct a just and lasting peace.
