The LA5 newly activated Peace Committee has been meeting and planning programs to fulfill our mission of building an awareness of peace as a means to address world and local issues. The committee’s first idea is for LA5 members to know one another better within the context of peace conversations.
In that context the committee is pleased to announce it is launching a forum informed by good food, the warmth of hospitality and forging friendship. We plan hold dinner meetings in member homes - all on the same night - focused around the topic for discussion of Understanding Through the Lens of Culture. Each attendee (who desires) will have the opportunity to introduce oneself by way of our own self-identified cultural background. A facilitator will have a few questions to gently guide the discussion.
Save the date Saturday, January 15, 2022, 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm. To accommodate as many members as want to attend - up to 10 per location, and with reasonable travel time - we are seeking six to eight LA5 members to offer to host in their home, in regions where members reside, e.g., downtown, Westside, South Bay, Pasadena, east San Gabriel Valley, Orange County, etc. Each host could prepare the meal, or do a pot luck and ask for food contributions once attendees are identified and assigned to a location.
We will be providing more information and formally soliciting hosts but for now, please hold the date and whet your appetite for what will be a truly special evening of LA5 fellowship!
