Banen Chaney - Kansas City intern 2010

Banen Chaney

Banen Chaney served as an "Organize the Hope" intern with AFSC in Kansas City during the Spring semester of 2010.

Chalk This Art Up to Peace

Mary Vincent, an AFSC-Kansas City Program Committee member, participated in the Northeast Kansas City Arts Chalk Walk Festival through the sponsorship of AFSC and the KC Iraq Task Force.

She and a partner produced a “square” of chalk art depicting a pair of Eyes Wide Open combat boots with the caption “The Cost of War.” Hundreds of Festival participants were reminded of the ongoing costs of the Iraq and Afghanistan war by the image.

Intern Brings People Together in Kansas City

By Banen Chaney, former intern with AFSC Kansas City

            First, I will say that this AFSC internship has been a great experience and I feel that it has really helped me grow as a person. My desire of educating individuals on the potential for peace has dramatically increased, and I plan to continue my work, even without the title of “Peace Studies Intern.”
