    How We Responded to the Pandemic

    A pandemic reminds us that everything is connected. And in a many-to-many way. Such times of collective suffering make virtue visible, and even if the light stays on momentarily, we can't unsee the good that we saw. It’s time to get to work. Read More »

Nuggets From Huda Abuarquob's Call Posted by Janessa Wilder, Sep 27 2021 Last Saturday, we had the privilege of hosting Awakin Call with Huda Abuarquob. Huda Abu Arquob’s family history "challenges the simplistic narrative of Palestinians and Israelis fighting for 3,000 years." She is now Regional Director of the Alliance for Middle East Peace (ALLMEP), a coalition of more than 130 civil society organizations working in Palestine and in Israel on conflict transformation, peacebuilding and nonviolent direct actions. She is also a recognized leader in Feminist Inclusive Political Activism.

He spent time living by choice on the street, amongst the homeless, in Philadelphia where he’s from. So, he really can speak from that personal experience, as he does in the conversation with Nipun and in the book he's also written. The next thing that struck me was the idea of the wounded heart as being a source for great compassion or great violence. This spoke ... Read Full Story
