Delaware County Peace Center Announcement
A GLOBAL KINDNESS REVOLUTION, JUDITH TRUSTONE, AND SO MUCH MORE…
Join award-winning author, filmmaker and human rights advocate, Judith Trustone of Sagewriters and the Global Kindness Revolution on Sunday, July 26th from 6:00-9:00 pm at the Peace Center, 1001 Old Marple Rd., Springfield, PA 19064, for an overview of the fast-spreading global movement.
It brings together under one umbrella the autonomous religious, non-religious, political, ethnic, racial justice and rights groups for a common vision of Kindness as an antidote to violence. It grew out of her creative writing classes in prisons eight years ago. She’ll be discussing her new book and upcoming video blog, The Global Kindness Revolution: How Together We Can Heal Violence, Racism and Meanness and screening her documentary, How To Create A Kindness Circle, which is at the core of the movement’s work; Judith’s film is available globally on YouTube.
GKR’s Ambassador to Afghanistan and California, Atta Arghandiwal, will describe conditions there. Amy Kaufman and her daughter, Holly, of the Shauna Rose Kaufman Foundation, will share their experiences on the ground in Nepal, where they are leading Kindness Circles, and Brenda Emerick, a prison change advocate from western PA whose son is a life-sentenced prisoner, will discuss efforts for Kindness and healing within the Incarcerated Community. The ultimate plan, a Global Kindness Circle, is to gather on the same day at the same time (allowing for differences) to focus on Kindness, whether through Kindness Circles, prayer or meditation groups or just the curious, to see what it’s all about. We will be experiencing a Kindness Circle and raising funds for work in Nepal.
In late October GKR is partnering with the Dali Lama to create a regional Kindness event. Organizers for the Pope’s upcoming visit are also interested.
