One Huntsville holds gathering tonight to discuss peace building through solidarity

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – With tension building and peace deteriorating in Ferguson, Missouri, now may be the perfect time for a gathering planned by One Huntsville.

The group aims to provide an opportunity to meet across religious, racial and cultural segments, exchange information and become informed through a good program.

The August program is set for Tuesday, August 19th at 5:00pm at the Huntsville Madison County Public Library on Monroe Street.

The program is entitled, “Economic Mobility and Peace Building through Solidarity; A Baha’i Perspective.”

Organizers say it will examine the role of religion and wealth creation and the integral function of economic stability in establishing cooperative peace.

Members will also look at and discuss a new definition of peace which views peace as a verb and an approach to conflict rather than the absence of conflict.

The program begins at 5:00pm with dinner and informal table discussion.  Attendees can bring their own dinner or purchase one there for six dollars.

If you’d like to order a boxed turkey sandwich dinner, reserve it by noon today by sending an email to or call (256) 536-2401.

At 5:45pm, there will be an update on community life entitled, “Unity in our Community”.

The program and dialogue follow at 6:00pm until 7:00pm.

Organizers say anyone can drop in to hear part of all of the program.
