Held on the "2nd Saturdays" of each month, we will enjoy a delicious vegan potluck and meeting, along with a discussion, film screening, food demo or speaker presentation. Every month will be something new! All ages and newcomers are welcome to attend! We'll even have a "kids korner" area for young children to play with toys, etc., plus plenty of vegan literature and starter guides for the veg-curious.
As a follow up to their Nuns on the Bus tour through the Midwest last summer, NETWORK, a Catholic Social Justice Lobby, are revving up their engines for another national campaign. Only this time the Catholic sisters are taking their mobile platform for social justice along the country's southern border to push Congress to pass immigration reform. The sisters will share stories from their travels and discuss the importance of passing moral laws. They are interested to hear from local groups about any special aspects of immigration that are impacting Houston as well.
Houston Peace and Justice Center's Peace Education Working Group is pleased to sponsor Living Peace, facilitated by Bren Hardt. This will be a morning-long introduction/review of Compassionate Communication followed by an optional, afternoon session with exercises and practice to increase your skills and confidence. It is being held specially for the Houston Peace and Justice Center. Others are welcome, too!

Peace Camp Houston has openings for K through 5th grade campers this summer. The mission is "to provide an alternative day camp experience which fosters an understanding of peace, justice, and environmental awareness." The first week will be at the Cameron Retreat Center at Holcombe and Almeda. The second week will be at the Mennonite Church on Wirt Rd. Both weeks will be fun, but different, and campers may attend either or both.
