An Evening with John Hall, Kindness Amidst Chaos, Stories from Lesvos was scheduled to take place this coming Friday evening. Due to unforeseen circumstances, John is not able to be with us on February 9. Most unfortunately the event has been cancelled.
We will reschedule with John hopefully very soon as the topic is extremely important. As soon as we know when that is going to be we will let you know. Our apologies for any inconvenience.
Meanwhile, please save this date: Sunday, April 15 (12p – 5p). We are planning to take the conversation deeper with a very special event at the Delhi Center in Santa Ana. This highly intersectional and experiential discussion will focus on transforming our prejudices into increased sustainability and compassion, and will feature Gene Baur (Farm Sanctuary), Claire Kim (UCI Poli Sci), Katie-Jay Stauring (i-ACT), Kiel Majewski (Carl Wilkens Fellowship) and Joni Marie Newman (Just the Food).
BTW: Would you like to volunteer with Living Ubuntu? We are looking for a few more who might want to join our volunteer team to help us plan for April 15 and other events and advocacy efforts coming up soon. If you want to jump in with us, just send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the spirit of Ubuntu,

His email was about his extreme concern for his family and friends that remain in his homeland, the violence having once again recently escalated. This year alone has displaced hundreds of thousands.
My friend knows all too well what can happen, having lost myriad friends and family members to this seemingly endless genocide already. He knows when a family member comes to visit, it may be their last. He knows that a long walk for the family’s water may result in death upon return. He knows firsthand that those who protest in peace risk detention and torture. He knows full well that sometimes they are released after a few days, and sometimes they are not. Continue reading
April 2014 Genocide Awareness and Prevention Month
When we see others as the enemy, we risk becoming what we hate. When we oppress others, we end up oppressing ourselves. All of our humanity is dependent upon recognizing the humanity in others.
