Event Description

Following Kenya’s disputed national elections held in December 2007, violence broke out in many parts of the country. Quakers very quickly organized relief and reconciliation activities that included and brought together Kenyans of all ages and from all sides of the conflict. One year later, their work to help people heal from trauma, restore communities, and mediate and prevent conflict continues. What can their model teach us about urban peacemaking in our community?
