AFP 2017: Sharing Stories/Connecting Communities
October 4, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 8:00 pm
Anne Frank Project’s Social Justice Festival, SUNY Buffalo State (1300 Elmwood Ave, Bflo 14222). Includes: 11am-1pm From Trauma to Healing; Turning a Cycle of Violence into a Spiral of Healing; Interactive workshop by Victoria Ross (LMSW, QCSW); stories include that of facilitator’s German Jewish father, people who’ve lost loved ones to violence, been incarcerated, and more. Sheik Ghassan Manasri of the Abrahamic Reunion will share some wisdom in a video clip, and we’ll learn and grow together as we share our strengths and insights on the healing process. In Campbell Student Union’s Assembly Hall. We’re sure to be inspired by the stories, each other, and the strength of the Spirit as we explore routes to healing and forgiveness.
About our theme: Our increasingly divisive world is actually the product of a small number of powerful communities rather than the multiple diverse groups of people whose stories are often silenced by oppression, or simply unknown. AFP 2017 encourages presenters and participants to surface these marginalized communities, navigate their difficulties, address conflicts, disassemble assumptions, and practice sharing stories to connect communities and improve the world.
