LASC Oct. 13 cosponsored Honduras talk

On Saturday, October 13th at 7 pm at the Network of Religious Communities, 1272 Delaware Avenue in Buffalo, Sister Nelly Delcid of Honduras gave a presentation co-sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, the SSJ Sister Karen Klimczak Center for Nonviolence, and the Latin American Solidarity Committee of the WNY Peace Center.

Sister Nelly Delcid is Director of Mercy Dreamweavers in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. An active member of the Women in Resistance, a branch of the Honduran Resistance Movement, Nelly and others from Mercy Dreamweavers champion rights for women as an essential part of the changes needed in Honduras. She is the Honduran coordinator of the Alternatives to Violence Project and represents Honduras on the Peacebuilding en las Americas working group of Friends Peace Teams.

Presently in Honduras there is much unrest.  Sister Nelly spoke passionately about the need to live and work without fear in a world full of violence, and how we might support her vision of peace and justice in Honduras and in our own lives.

Thanks, Wayne Alt and Vivian Waltz for organizing this in Buffalo.
