Shameless Self-Promotion

On Friday April 25th, at 6:30, please join the BroadArts Theatre artists, board and volunteers for the first in our series of "Conversations With Extraordinary Women" Salons. BroadArts is creating this series of Salons, featuring local 'wonderbroads' who are making our world more equal, peaceful, compassionate and just.This first Salon will focus on community peacemaking and peacemakers, and will feature members of BroadArts Theatre's BroadBand singing satirical and serious social justice songs, along with conversation with the audience and our special guest.

Our special guest April 25th is Joy Ellison, of Vancouver, Washington, who is currently serving her second year as a Christian Peacemaker Team member in the south Hebron hills of At-Tuwani. CPT in At-Tuwani. CPT accompanies Palestinian shepherds, farmers and school children in the area around Israel's Ma’on settlement and its outposts.

The first "Conversations With Extraordinary Women" Salon will be held at the St. Francis of Assisi Parish Center, 1131 SE Oak at SE 12th and Pine Street, (in between Burnside and Stark Streets) in the Che' Room. The event is a potluck- please bring something to share that doesn't need to be heated nor kept cold. Recyclable plates and flatware, and locally produced juice will be provided. There is a wheelchair ramp into the building and an accessible parking space in the church parking lot. Street parking is also available: St Francis is also accessible by bus.

Other "Conversations With Extraordinary Women" Salons will be held in May and June in various quadrants of the city.

Please join us, meet this remarkable young woman and join in a conversation as to how Joy and others are participating in creating a more peaceful world.
