What's the world you envision? At our last gathering in LA, special guests from Venice Community Housing shared with us their inspiring work to create a world without homelessness. They told us that they're facing prejudice and pushback from residents here - an important example of why we must continue to reach out across differences with love in our hearts. 

The war economy aims to separate us, but we know we're stronger when we come together. Join us for these upcoming events to grow peace in LA!
