ProgramBurlington Friends in Africa 

We will be discussing the American Friends Service Committee’s project of “No Way to Treat a Child.” In the interest of informing this discussion, we have asked our Friend Laurie Gagne to present on her recent experiences in Palestine, rather than on her work in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We understand from Friends that Laurie has a very powerful presentation on the West Bank, including wonderful photographs, that should be quite relevant to our “No Way to Treat a Child” discussion. 

For children: We will provide childcare for young children and a program for older children.

Registration: There are three ways to register!
