‘A Century of MI Voices for Justice and Peace — and New Directions’


As September wraps up, so does PeaceQuest 2023 programming. One of the final events is a seminar 7 p.m. Wednesday (Sept. 27) covering peace activism in Michigan, “A Century of MI Voices for Justice and Peace — and New Directions.”

The two-part program will include a brief review of justice and peace activism throughout the last century in the Lansing area and Michigan as a whole. The Greater Lansing United Nations Association, Peace Education Center and Lansing-Area Advocacy Team for the Friends Committee on National Legislation will present.

William A. “Bill” Root, a 100-year-old Navy veteran of World War II, former U.S. State Department foreign service officer and local activist, will also present a speech titled, “Seeking Justice and Peace in Our Time,” in which he will touch on his peace-building journey and share wisdom on ways to avoid war and seek justice and peace. 

The seminar is a hybrid event, being offered in person and via Zoom. It is free and open to the public. To register, visit peacequestgreaterlansing.org/events-schedule and click the registration link under the event information.
