Campus and local communities invited to 'Voices of Hope' discussion, Feb. 18

Members of the University and local communities are invited to attend "Voices of Hope: Finding Strength for the Struggle" on Monday, Feb. 18.

The program is one in a series of Princeton University/Community Dialogues designed to foster reflection and discussion among individuals and among campus and community partners.

Two sessions will be held: The first will begin at noon in Murray-Dodge, and the second will begin at 6 p.m. in the Third World Center. Each is expected to last two hours

Vincent Harding, professor of religion at the Iliff School of Religion in Denver, will lead the program, which will include excerpts from documentaries featuring the stories of two veterans of the 1960s civil rights movement, Gwendolyn Zoharah Simmons, assistant professor of Islam studies at the University of Florida, and Ruby Sales, director of Spirit House in Washington, D.C. They will be present and will participate in a discussion facilitated by Harding and his wife, Rosemarie Freeney Harding.

The Hardings are the founders and co-chairs of the Veterans of Hope Project, a multi-faceted educational initiative on religion, culture and participatory democracy. In their work, they gather and share the life stories of "veterans" who have been active for many years in movements for compassionate social change.

Meals will be provided at the sessions. To reserve a place for lunch in Murray-Dodge, send e-mail to sismondo@princeton.edu ; to reserve a place for dinner, send e-mail to smiller@princeton.edu . Reservations should be made by Wednesday, Feb. 13.
