After last week's shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, many people have raised the issue of the National Rifle Association's longstanding undermining of comprehensive gun control policies at the federal state and local levels. WIthout a doubt, the NRA is a major player in supporting policies that allow for viturally unfettered access to a range of weapons, that are not just about hunting and gaming of animals.
The Scranton Women's Leadership Center (SWLC) will be holding a peace seminar in Seoul on July 27-August 4, 2013. U.S. college women (ages 18-30) will be joining 50 other college students from Korea, Japan, China, and other Asian countries. The purpose of the seminar is to learn about peace issues in Northeast Asia as it relates to the United States and the world, and gain an understanding on the historical context of peace.
Participants will get a chance to enhance their leadership skills on peace, build a global network and become life-time peacemakers.
