Feb 25, 2017 09:07PM
Advoz, a new organization joining two long-standing Lancaster County community organizations, the Center for Community Peacemaking and Conflict Resolution Services, is celebrating its inaugural year with an event titled Around the Table with Arun Gandhi, beginning at 5 p.m., May 4, at Spooky Nook, in Manheim. The benefit includes a reception, dinner, auction and program.
Arun Gandhi is the grandson of Mohandas Gandhi and founder of the M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence. The event will use a conversational format with Dr. Gandhi to explore how his two years living with Grandfather Gandhi could shed light on current challenges and divisions. Scott LaMar, host of WITF’s Smart Talk, will receive the first Dignity in Dialogue Award as part of the event. Voices of other local peacemakers will also be recognized. The father-daughter duet, John and Helena Protopapas, will be the musical guests.
Advoz provides mediation and restorative practices, with a mission to transform conflict and build community through face-to-face dialogue programs.
