Kansas Citians Renew Call for Afghan Withdrawal

By Ira Harritt, AFSC Kansas City Program Coordinator

AFSC in Kansas City continues to organize rallies, vigils and forums knowing that many of our constituents are extremely weary of war. They are also well aware of just how dysfunctional the U.S. Congress has become and how insulated our elected officials are from the impact of grassroots lobbying, especially from the left.

Park University Peace Intern Reflects on Working For Peace

Reflections from Park University AFSC Campus Peace Intern, Matthew Burton

April 2011

The Peace Education Club, or Peace Club as it is more commonly known, accomplished many things. Together as a unit of collective peace to themselves and the student body, the group succeeded to stay present in light of a not so peaceful culture. Bringing themselves and the Park University student body together in intellectually changeling way became the motto for the Peace Club.

Time of Growth and Transformation for KC Intern

Dear AFSC:

I was met with open arms and open minds. It has been an honor to have been given the opportunity to be a part of your community.  I have always desired to be a change agent, and I have truly seen this here at AFSC. The dedication to the values and belief of social justice is very evident here; represented by passion and desire to bring light into dark situations.
