Western New York Peace Center Anti-War Workshop

March, 2007
Unitarian Universalist Church of Buffalo, NY
The event aimed to strengthen the peace movement through workshops that examined different strategies for speaking out and taking action. Read the excerpt below from artvoice. Faizan Haq, who teaches Islamic cultural history at UB and intercultural communications at Buffalo State, preferred the term “pro-peace” to “anti-war.” He ran a workshop in which he offered a sketch of Iraq’s history and its present position in the Middle East and the Arab and Muslim worlds. “I don’t see it as anti-war, I see it as educational,” he said of the evening’s proceedings. “It’s always great to learn something new.”
