Pamela Brubaker, Professor Emerita of Religion and Ethics at Cal Lutheran University reports on the
Alliance for Global Justice solidarity delegation to the Colombian Peace Negotiations
Pamela Brubaker has taught courses on peace and justice, participated in a 2009 International Forum for Peace and Justice in Bogota, Colombia, followed by a solidarity delegation to a conflict zone with Christian Peacemaker Teams, and then in April of this year was part of an Alliance for Global Justice solidarity delegation to the Colombian Peace Negotiations in Havana, Cuba.
Each year, the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on September 21. The General Assembly of the United Nations established the International Day of Peace in 1981 as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.
The theme of this year’s commemoration is “Partnerships for Peace – Dignity for All” which aims to highlight the importance of all segments of society to work together to strive for peace. The work of the United Nations would not be possible without the initial partnerships that were active in its creation and the thousands of partnerships each year between governments, civil society, the private sector, faith-based
groups and other non-governmental organizations that are needed to
support the Organization in achieving its future goals.
