Muslim and Christian women discuss wisdom for peacebuilding from their traditions
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Pope Francis in his message for the World Day of Peace gave examples such as the Muslim Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan. “Women in particular are often leaders of nonviolence, as for example, was Leymah Gbowee and the thousands of Liberian women,” Pope Francis states. She gathered Muslim and Christian women who organized “nonviolent protest that resulted in high level peace talks to end the second civil war in Liberia.” Come join local women in a discussion of peacebuilding. Muslims: Dr. Fatma Arslan, Sarwat Husain, Narjis Pierre, Sumeyra Tek. Christians: Rev. Rachel Epp Miller, Mennonite; Rev. Ann Helmke, Lutheran; Sr. Martha Ann Kirk, Roman Catholic. For those who would like to come at 6 pm, the award-winning film about the Nobel Laureate Laymah Gbowee, Pray the Devil Back to Hell will be shown. This documentary shows the social unrest in the West African Republic of Liberia, where civil war tore the nation apart until women united for peace. Co-Sponsored by the Council on American Islamic Relations-San Antonio, Dialog Institute, Interfaith INC, UIW Ettling Center for Civic Leadership, Pax Christi San Antonio, San Antonio Mennonite Church, San Antonio peaceCENTER, Women’s Global Connection.

From Those Who Follow the Echoes @ CAM Kick-Off Party
6:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Self-taught composer Nathan Felix and his new 30-piece choir collective, From Those Who Follow the Echoes (FTWFTE), to showcase new indie-choral music, as part of the kick-off party at Blue Star Contemporary Museum for Contemporary Art Month on Thursday March 2nd. CAM Kick-Off Party is from 6-9pm with the choral performance starting shortly after 6:30. FTWFTE is a community-centered choir with a two-fold mission of bringing contemporary choral/classical music to San Antonio establishments such as museums, art exhibitions, gallery spaces and festivals as well as to serve new and underserved listeners through “pop up” performances in random spaces such as retirement homes, hotels, bridges, cemeteries and on the river to name a few.   Music director, Nathan Felix, started FTWFTE, in 2016 in an effort to bolster community within the creative arts scene and spread a message of hope and unity through music in San Antonio.     FTWFTE made it’s debut performances at Hotel Emma in November 2016 with a unique surprise “pop-up” concert in which the singers entered the Sternewirth room and dispersed throughout the mezzanine, the stairs and amongst the audience and sang new original works in Latin.  After their 20 minute performance at Hotel Emma they jumped in a bus and did a repeat performance on the Hay Street Bridge at Luminaria. Be on the look out for a unique presentation by the choir at Blue Star Contemporary as they intend to use movement around the walls along with the reverberation of the museum, to create a visually engaging performance.

A Presentation on Human Trafficking
7:00 PM
The La Vernia United Methodist Women will be hosting a presentation about human trafficking on Tuesday, March 7, 2017, at 7 p.m. in La Vernia United Methodist Church’s Family Life Building. The evening’s speaker is Susan  Burkholder, a volunteer with Ransomed Life, a faith based, 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization committed to providing a healing community for victims of sexual abuse. This event is geared toward adults and is open to all interested women and men. La Vernia United Methodist Church is located on FM775 (210 Bluebonnet Rd.) across the street from the La Vernia Junior High School. The reality is that human trafficking is not just a problem found in developing countries or impoverished areas. It is a crime that occurs in our own communities. Recent local headlines include "Two arrested, three convicted in separate human trafficking cases" (Justin Bourke, KENS, January 18, 2017), "S.A. man charged with human trafficking of young girl" (Jeremy T. Gerlach, San Antonio Express-News Wednesday, November 16, 2016), and "Agencies nab 7 in human-trafficking sting" (William J. Gibbs Jr., Wilson County News, February 10, 2016). Child Protective Services (CPS), a division of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS), explains that "human trafficking is modern-day slavery. Its victims are controlled and exploited for profit. Forced labor, sexual exploitation, and prostitution are the most common types of human trafficking." Victims are controlled through threats and violence, given only what they need to survive and unable to escape the traffickers. More information and additional resources for our area (DFPS Region 8) are available online at www.dfps.state.tx.us/Child_Protection/Investigations/Human_Trafficking/h.... If you are a victim or suspect that someone else is a victim of human trafficking, it is important to find help. The Human Trafficking Hotline is available to answer calls and texts from anywhere in the country, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year. Contact the free hotline by calling 1-888-373-7888 or texting BeFREE (233733).

Joe Lopez:Del Corazon (From the Heart)
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
With an irrepressible sense of ethnic identity and love for the subtle aspects of his cultural traditions, Lopez paints life.. real life; children at play, street vendors young and old, people doing simple everyday things. With the delicate feel of watercolors, he portrays intimate scenes sparked by simple ideas. His work reveals a deep emotional compassion for the Chicano working class. Besides his cultural paintings, he is also well known for his Dia de los Muertos artwork, and his fascination with “El Gallo” as a symbol that represents strength, beauty and courage. Having been born with only one hand has added to his sensitivity to life and given him the incentive to utilize his talent. He believes strongly about what he paints, that's how he reaches the viewer. Opening Reception: Fri., Mar. 10, 2017, 6-8 p.m. Exhibit on display: Fri., Mar. 10 – Fri.
