Friends’ Peace Dialogue – Speaker Series
Featuring Liz Grover, Hector Aristizabal and other guests.
At the age of 22, Liz Grover bought a one-way ticket to Afghanistan with only $100 in her pocket and no job lined up. Within 2 weeks, she landed a job as a journalist, and later hired by the United Nations to facilitate the country’s first democratic election in 2005. Hear about her amazing journey, and learn more about the Afghan people and culture.
Joining her will be Hector Aristizabal, who last year spent 3-weeks in Afghanistan working with Afghan human rights activists, victims of war, women, orphans, mental health providers, educators, and artists. Hector, a native of Colombia, is a dynamic speaker, educator and artist. Using his passion for the arts as method for resolving conflict, he has traveled extensively throughout the world to bring healing in war-torn countries.
Find out how you can work together with AFSC to end the U.S. militarization of Afghanistan and promote alternate, nonviolent ways to rebuild the country. The series is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, so please arrive early. The speaker series will take place during Downtown LA’s Artwalk, so consider planning an evening in the area. Parking is available at Joe’s parking, $8.
