Ninth Annual Gathering

Ninth Annual Gathering and First Annual J. Robert Sandman Lecture Series

This year, on March 3rd 2012, we were proud to introduce our first annual J. Robert Sandman Lecture with speaker Mark Johnson, executive director of FOR. The lecture, “Liberating Civil Society: Nonviolence in Service to Justice” spoke to the broadest issues of “occupying” or “liberating” civil society and citizenship. We had three discussion groups following the main presentation: Mark Johnson expanding on the occupy theme, Danny Postel discussing activism in Iran, and Frank Goetz speaking about local peace and occupy efforts.
