A Lasting Peace will be partnering with Alive Center in Naperville, Illinois on March 5th from 5:30-8:30pm for a special event and vegan potluck.
Diana Piedra created ‘A Lasting Peace’ which is a community based on the idea and desire to create something sustainable and real in our society. Here, especially in this part of the world, there is a false sense that everything is perfect, she says.
“It isn’t perfect and it doesn't have to be. It is our rough spots and our differences that create the character of our culture and I believe we should celebrate all that,” Piedra states. “But there is animal abuse and sex trafficking and all kinds of real issues that need to be addressed.”
The Professor of International Human Rights in Chicago, Benjamin Wolf, will be the main speaker for the event as well as presentations from Hesed House, World Relief and Reclaim 13.
Benjamin Wolf is a U.S. Congressional Candidate from Wicker Park in Chicago. Hesed House is a local organization whose goal is to end homelessness, World Relief "envisions the most vulnerable people transformed economically, socially, and spiritually” and Reclaim 13 fights human trafficking.
“It is our hope that many will come to support these amazing organizations and to learn more about them. This will be very informative,” says Piedra. “T-shirts and tanks are for sale and donations will be accepted. All proceeds will benefit Hesed House, World Relief and Reclaim 13.”
