56th Annual Fellowship of Reconciliation Conference “Taking Back the Fourth: Speaking Truth to Power”/William Stafford Track
In 2014, we celebrate 100 Years of the Fellowship of Reconciliation, our organization’s Centennial Year! It is also the Centennial of the birth of Oregon’s favorite Poet – William Stafford. To celebrate William Stafford is to celebrate peace-making. Bill and Dorothy Stafford were FOR Members since the 1940’s.
“With every word he wrote, every word he spoke, every action he took, he bore witness to his profound belief in the non-violent resolution of conflict.”
– Paulann Petersen
Our 2014 Seabeck FOR Conference (July 3-6) will be featuring a “William Stafford Centennial” track with poets, writers and other artists, in a special celebration to Oregon’s favorite Poet Laureate as we honor the 100th anniversary of his birth. This special program track on Stafford will run parallel with the 4-day FOR conference programing featuring Michael Nagler, UC Berkeley, Roadmap to Peace and Dr. Peter Philips, Project Censored; at Seabeck, WA Conference Center.
