For 25 years we have been gathering peace and justice practitioners in Harrisonburg, Virginia, every May and June. Unfortunately, that is not going to happen this year. But we are not going to let COVID-19 stop the Summer Peacebuilding Institute!
As the world navigates a global pandemic and economic upheaval, SPI Online 2020 will provide a space to learn from one another, to connect and encourage one another, and time to collectively envision the work now and in the coming months as we respond to this time of crisis and loss, disruption and opportunity. May we move through this time with grace, humility and a renewed commitment to embodying systems and relationships that are rooted in justice and an active peace for all.
We invite you to join us at SPI Online 2020!
