First Gathering of the PPF Activist Council
We hope you'll join us for the inaugural PPF Activist Council Gathering in Asheville, NC March 31-April 2, 2016.
We will meet, worship, collaborate, conspire, organize, and strategize for peace! Amy Cantrell, of the Beloved Community in Asheville, and others will lead us in worship and action throughout the weekend. Together, we will learn and plan to do faith-rooted organizing for peace within our communities and the Presbyterian Church (USA).
The gathering begins with 6 p.m. dinner on Thursday, March 31 and ends at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 2. We will provide transportation to and from the Asheville Airport. Another option is to fly in and out of the Charlotte airport and rent a car from there.
