She will talk about her experience and share how Kurdish Iraqi people are non-militarily resisting the threat of ISIS and about Kurdish villagers have been dealing with international oil corporations developing oil on their land. The Peace Potluck is a monthly event bringing students and community members together. Bring a dish to share if you can, but it’s not required. For more information contact 740-593-7301 or email

  1. Wish I could be there. For me, sitting safely at home, it seemed like much longer than 2.5 months! Did it feel longer, shorter of just so – 2.5 months to you?
