this saturday, the 12th !!
Students and staff at Wellsprings Friends school have organized a unique event to promote understanding and seek alternatives to violence and war.

On SATURDAY, JANUARY 12 the Peace and Justice festival will take place from 11:00-3:00pm. It will be at WFS, which is located in the Eugene Mennonite church at 3590 West 18th avenue. The purpose of the Peace Festival is to help us visualize a more peaceful world, educate ourselves about alternative ways of living that do not breed violence and suffering.
