Resilience: Planting Seeds and Growing Movements

Join the Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center for their 2019 Annual Gathering featuring keynote speaker Winona LaDuke.

This October, IJPC is excited to host Winona LaDuke, an internationally acclaimed author, orator and activist at our annual gathering, Resilience: Planting Seeds and Growing Movements. LaDuke is founder and co-director of Honor the Earth, a national advocacy group encouraging public support and funding for native environmental groups. In 1997, LaDuke was named Ms. Magazine’s Woman of the Year, and in 2007 she was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame. Through LaDuke’s intersectional work for indigenous communities and environmental responsibility, we will highlight the need for resilient social justice movements that challenge violence in its most nuanced forms and promote a sustainable and equitable world for all people.

During the night they will celebrate the work of local peace makers through honoring them with the IJPC Margaret Fuller Peace Award and the IJPC Bob Maxwell Peace Builder Award as well as share updates about the successes and struggles of the previous year on the front lines of social justice in Cincinnati.
