Waging Peace Now Available
 
It’s International Peace Day and to commemorate it, we’ve produced an online book, Waging Peace.
The poems, narrative and artwork were contributed by you, our members!
Take a look at Waging Peace online
or you can go to Lulu.com
and purchase a hard copy of the book.
As noted in the introduction of Waging Peace, contributors are amateur and professional, young and older, representing multiple religions, ethnicities and geographic origins. This is our first venture in producing a collective work and we are thrilled with the response we have received, both from our contributors and from our members.
Two October Events You Don’t Want To Miss
 
October is a big month for Voices. If you are in the Seattle area come and join us for two events:
Seda: Voices of Iran workshop for teachers and students will be held on October 3.
Presenters for the day-long workshop include: political scientist, Nader Nazemi, human rights lawyer Arzoo Osanloo, film producer and photographer, Abdi Sami and poet Sholeh Wolpe.
Wolpe will be reading her own works and the works of the acclaimed Persian poet Forugh Farrokhzad. A special musical presentation will be made by the Kamand Ensemble. Register for the workshop on our website
Your workshop ticket can be used as entry into this next event: Rick Steves: Travel as a Political Act, on October 10.
Just one week later, this event will be at Town Hall with former cirque du soleil lead vocalist, Gina Sala. Details of the evening are on our website.
Tickets for the evening can be purchased there as well. Please plan on joining us for one or both events.
Buy your tickets for the Rick Steves event.
 
New: Iranian Curriculum
We’re very excited about our latest curriculum: Seda: Voices of Iran.
It’s an amazing introduction to the history, political turmoil and the culture of Iran. Many years ago George Orwell suggested that the way to enter a new culture is to keep our eyes and ears open and our mouth closed.
Some may view his observation as naive, but if we delve a little deeper we find that the Iran of today, while still holding tight to its core values, is not the Iran we left behind in the 1979 Islamic Revolution. We have a long road to travel as we begin to learn about Iran again. The material in our Iranian curriculum provides a pathway to new insights and offers a new framework from which we can ask questions and seek answers.

About reality

Also, thanx for signing my petitions, et al, please consider sharing them. Also, since Admin. of change.org aren't allowing me to invite people to do my actions lately and are switching my urls for my petitions so when I invite people off their site they can't get to the petition either (ergo 3 possible urls for each petition), here's a few of my latest actions; do as few or as many as you'd like (there are 3 linx for each petition because admin. switches between the 3 of them so people trying to sign the petition can‘t get to it): This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Haiti disaster anniversary, please, do what you can: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9033 This petition on change.org: Haiti disaster anniversary: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2?share_id=yIpWHEHxri&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2 http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Green, Indigenous, Native American, etc., actions: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9026 This petition on change.org: Green, Indigenous, Native American, acts: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous_native_american_acts?share_id=NHvTtQadfP&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, holiday: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9024 This petition on change.org: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. M.L.
