Grafton – The Unitarian Universalist Society of Grafton and Upton, 3 Grafton Common, will host Libby Hoffman, founder and president of Catalyst for Peace, Sunday, May 5, at 10 a.m. Also, at 1:30 p.m., her multi-award winning documentary film, “Fambul Tok,” about forgiving the unforgiveable in Sierra Leone will be shown at Community Harvest Project, 37 Wheeler Road, in North Grafton. There is no charge to attend either event.

 

Catalyst for Peace is a U.S.-based private foundation building peace from the inside-out – creating space for those most affected by violence to lead in building the peace, supported by healthy, inclusive systems. She co-founded Fambul Tok (Family Talk) in Sierra Leone, which created the world’s first national scale, locally owned and led reconciliation program and is now pioneering a national people’s planning process and framework. She produced the multiple-award-winning documentary film and is a lead author of the companion book – both released in 2011.
