Barbara Tebyani, Co-President  


Sheri Rueter, Speaker

The Cookstove Project is a program of Global Peace Women and the Global Peace Foundation.  At this time, the project works with women in Uganda and in Nepal.  It is one of seve­­ral projects that are part of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, which receives the bulk of its funding from the UN Foundation.

"BLACK INSIDE - Three Women's Voices"  
A film with Sarah from Kenya - Vandana from India, and – Monica from Peru.  

Also, Julia Roberts speaks on the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves.

Cantor Estherleon Schwartz, Child Holocaust Survivor

“Circle of Gratitude” presentation to be implemented in all schools. 

Lehka Singh, Speaker

The film's co-director and producer, will screen and discuss how a film that she co-directed with Roger Spottiswoode can become a peaceful movement.  Lehka uses video to expose human rights abuse and to create change and examines forgiveness in times of tragedy.

"BEYOND RIGHT AND WRONG: Stories of Justice and Forgiveness"

The Film looks at areas of conflict around the world and asks what it takes to forgive, and what it takes to ask for forgiveness under the most difficult of circumstances. Stories include the conflict in Northern Ireland, Israel and Palestine’s dispute over Jerusalem, and genocide in Rwanda. What remains singular among these terrible incidents is not the justice served or severity of the atrocities, but rather the level of dialogue and discourse reached between both perpetrators and victims.

Refreshments will be served and an ACTUAL COOKSTOVE will be displayed (no fires).
