Do you think women might have something to say about peace? Watch this and you’ll see why the answer is most assuredly yes! Celebrate the launch of the Women Waging Peace Network at the Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice at the University of San Diego. Emcee Swanee Hunt, the former US Ambassador to Austria, leads a panel of peacemakers marking the success of the more than a thousand women from around the world. Learn how women have joined together to serve as negotiators, experts, advocates, policymakers, and other roles crucially needed in peace processes. There’s a whole lot of wisdom on offer here.
Haven’t you heard? The Dalai Lama is coming to San Diego for a whirlwind tour that includes four appearances in just two days, April 18 and 19. The public events at UC San Diego, USD and SDSU are already sold out and, well, the fourth event isn’t open to the public.
If you’re one of the many who couldn’t get tickets, then you’ll be happy to hear that UCSD-TV will be live streaming the public events on our website for any and all to view. Then, in May, we will broadcast his UCSD and USD appearances, as well as the private event held at Scripps Seaside Forum. So basically, you’re in!
