Kudos to K4P Atlanta alum Kenzie Anderson for organizing a program about Kids4Peace at Goucher College!

A first year student at Goucher, Kenzie arranged a visit by K4P Vice-President and former Jerusalem Director Dr. Yakir Englander.  Yakir gave a campus-wide talk on the theme “Can we believe in peace?”   The event was in partnership with the Peace Studies Program, Goucher Hillel and the Office of Religious & Spiritual Life. (Event Poster)

“I was originally not going to attend the Kids4Peace talk, but I am so glad I went. It was enlightening to hear the multiple perspectives of the Israel-Palestine conflict, and the organization bridging the gap between the two groups through the next generation. I hope to have the chance to volunteer at the Houston Chapter with this wonderful organization.”

“It was great to see a unique account of Israel and Palestine that was both historical and emotional. I was inspiring to see that there are people so passionate about peace.”

– Andrea Sosa, Goucher College
