GREENSBORO, NC - March 14--Drum beats and chanting filled the air as dozens of protesters marched from Washington Street to their final destination at The Carolina Theater, in Greensboro, NC on March 14, 2012.

There they converged with an eager crowd of supporters to celebrate the premier of a locally produced short film, “Let’s Lose Our House:  A Modern Foreclosure Tale.”

International Day Of Peace Events

During the International Day of Peace on September 21, AFSC participated in events around the world to support the calls of many communities seeking peace.

Dalian, China

AFSC’s Joseph Gerson and Jason Tower spoke at the Northeast Asia Peace and Development Forum in Dalian. They were joined by Johan Galtung – a founder of the field of peace studies – and Song DaeSung of the Korean Sejong Institute.

Peace Day in Greensboro

For AFSC’s Area Office of the Carolinas, this year’s Peace Day was much more than a one-day ceasefire. Peace, for us, rather than an absence of violence, is about building community through cultural sharing, celebrating diversity, and developing personal relationships based on respect and trust.

In Greensboro, our Day of Peace was a two-day tour of the city for a visiting delegation from AFSC-Indonesia. We used their visit to highlight aspects of Greensboro’s culture and activism.
