Living letters visit to the United States, 15-23 September 2007

Church leaders and communities facing situations of violence in New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and New Orleans shared their experiences with an international ecumenical team that visited the United States from 15-23 September 2007.

Being from South Africa, Lebanon, Pakistan and Brazil the team members expressed the solidarity of churches worldwide with the US churches while learning from their peacemaking efforts concerning urban and gun violence as well as environmental racism and the Iraq war.

Members of the team were a church leader, a public health specialist, a theologian and a human rights lawyer, each of them bringing personal experiences of violence and peacemaking from their societies.
