Fall 2010 - Politics and Peacemaking - Advocacy Training
Fall 2010 seems a long way off - but we are making plans that advance the good for the all!
Details will be forthcoming - but Derek Sparks - who currently works for Congresswoman Mary Fallin (she is currently campaigning for OK Governor) - will be working with us toward a Fall Education and Training event on making our political advocacy toward peace more effective.
Derek has had extensive experience with foreign affairs and human rights issues in Senator Tom Coburn’s office on Capitol Hill. His postgraduate work at the University of St Andrews in Scotland centered on Middle East and Central Asian Security Studies. Not only does he have this background academically and experientially - I found him a delightful conversationalist who could talk easily and with credibility about a variety of issues on the international scene. He has a particular interest in human rights issues and their impact upon international security.
More details to follow as we learn more about how we can make our voice in peace-making and advancing the good for all more effective.
