The following is a letter sent to ISSA regarding the above event:

Good afternoon,

My name is Cecilly Hildebrand. I had the wonderful privilege of presenting

and participating in your Public Square event last night at Sargent

Mennonite Church. I feel as though I walked away with new friends as well

as a deeper desire to participate in more similar dialogue events. I wanted

to thank you this opportunity. If you are planning to have more events and

have an email list that you send updates to, I would love to have my name


I would also like to extend a personal invitation to attend the Canadian

School of Peacebuilding, an institute of Canadian Mennonite University. We

offer two weeks of 5-day courses from June 17-21 and June 24-28. Each year

we invite peacebuilders – local and international, young and old, students,

practitioners and those new to peacebuilding, from all faiths, countries

and identity groups – to participate in their choice of 5-day courses for

personal inspiration, professional development, or academic credit. One of

the courses I'd like to highlight is being taught by Mubarak Awad, called

"Finding Your Voice: Understanding Nonviolent Action for Today's Complex

World." Mubarak Awad was born in Jerusalem, Palestine, and is the founder

of the Palestinian Center for the Study of Nonviolence in Jerusalem. He

also formed Nonviolence International, which promotes peace education and

nonviolent action in dealing with political and social issues, and is an

adjunct professor at the American University in Washington focusing on

promoting dialogue and transforming post-conflict societies. If you are

interested in this course or others, please feel free to visit our website

Please also feel free to forward information about this course on to anyone

who may be interested. The more diverse the classroom, the more enriching

it is. We would love to gain your friendship.

Once again, thank you very much for the opportunity to participate in the

Public Square event. I felt truly blessed by the open and respectful

conversations and the struggle to come to grips with the mutual concerns we
