What we're about
This group will consist of individuals concerned about one or more aspects of global conflict, ethnic or religious conflict, political strife, and environmental and species degradation. Meetings will include open discussion with a strong focus on the facts and a definite disavowal of ideological lobbying & doctrinal righteousness. Rather than rant, we will attempt to identify the roots and causes of any given area of conflict. Each member will be responsible for investigating, reading, and researching an area of conflict of special interest to him or her. At meetings members will be invited to share facts and other outcomes of their independent research and investigation. We will also discuss strategies for effective conflict resolution. This is not a meditation or inner peace group. Members have an "activist" orientation to positive change in the world and hold themselves responsible for timely research to be shared.
