does J ) .   Small Group Workshops are being led by  Maia Halllard Carter

worked for the AFSC SERO Middle East Peace Education Program and who is the

We have been involved with Friends of Sabeel for many years.  This should be
an excellent and inspiring conference.  I know Atlanta is a ways from you,

 There are many parallels between the Palestinians and the Civil Rights


Thinking of you,
