Sacrifice and Mass Violence: Disrupting Mimetic Violence through Community Building

Prince of Peace Lutheran Church
177 Princeton-Hightstown Road
La Convivencia

YWCA Princeton is proud to co-sponsor this presentation with La Convivencia at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church.

Ongoing mass violence in the U.S is raising questions about gun control, mental illness, and how to create more peaceful communities. Come join us for a presentation and discussion forum on Rene Girard’s ground-breaking theory on societal violence. We will introduce Girard’s work and discuss ways in which empowering voices of marginalized populations and increasing community engagement leads to a more peaceful and resilient society.

Coffee, tea, and light refreshments will be served.
