*The Jeannette Rankin Peace Center is Hosting their Second Annual
Un-conference on Saturday, June 11, 8:30 am-5:30 pm at University
Congregational Church (405 University Ave., Missoula) *

The Jeannette Rankin Peace Center presents “Roots & Wings: How Will You
Take Radical Responsibility for a Better World” a day-long “un-conference”.
The JRPC has been the Roots of peace in our community for 30 years. The
conference will build on that foundation to look at how we can all become
the wings of peace in our communities. We are asking how to reach deep into
all our individual and collective strength, courage, and resources to take
responsibility for extending those benefits out to seven generations and
beyond, to take a radical stand for possibility and potential. And we are
looking for folks from all persuasions to join us so our conversations are
deep and productive.

At the un-conference, four lightning speakers​, including Alexandra "Rain"
Smith, Amy Cilimburg, Patrick Weasel Head and Joshua Slotnick​ will ignite
the participants with their individual passions for peacemaking. Using Open
Space Meeting Technology facilitated by Harold Shinsato, JRPC members,
friends, and community members will be invited to nominate and host any
topic related to the theme. These will become simultaneous, fluid break-out
sessions in which participants share ideas, inspire each other, and engage
on the most powerful topics of interest. At the close, participants will be
invited to an evening reception in the UCC Courtyard with snacks and music
provided by Lawrence Dunca​n to celebrate the 30th anniversary of JRPC, the
roots of peace in Missoula. Free for JRPC members; $20 for non-members.
Lunch, snacks, and evening reception included. More information and online
registration is at jrpc.org/roots-and-wings or call 543-3955.

The public is invited to join us for our evening reception to celebrate 30
years of peacemaking.
