Building Relationships in Rania - Nov 2

Duluth-Rania Friendship Exchange Project invites you to:

Building Relationships in Rania
with Michele Naar-Obed
Monday, November 2, 7pm
Zinema 2 Theaters
(222 E. Superior St, Duluth)

Michele, a member of Christian Peacemaker Teams, has made numerous trips to Iraq and Iraqi Kurdistan. She is the inspiration for a Duluth-area citizen-based trip to Rania, Iraq. That trip took place in May, 2009.

Michele will provide an update on the developments in the Duluth-Rania connection and will talk about her recent visit to a camp for internally displaced people.

There will be a short video presentation of the children at the IDP camp. This friendship exchange project will offer hope to those kids and they, as well as our kids, are our future and our chance for a better world.

Members of the May trip to Iraq will join Michele in her presentation: Brooks Anderson, Marv Heikkinen, Donna Howard, Arno Kahn, Tom Morgan and Salima Swenson

This event is free and open to the public. A social hour in the Zinema atrium will follow Micheles presentation. Beverages will be available for purchase from the Zinema.

With special support from: The Alworth Center for the Study of Peace & Justice at CSS and from Zeitgeist Arts.
