Mighty Be Our Powers reminds us that even in the worst of times, humanity's best can shine through.”

We are thrilled to extend this special invitation to bring your lunch and your curiosity, and to join Gbowee in a conversation about both her own experiences standing up for peace and civil rights in wartorn Liberia, and about how to identify and approach conflicts in our own communities.
