We’ll have two local alumni giving a short presentation about their life passions:
Helen Spector, Sociology Major, Pembroke Class of 1967
Helen will talk about her 18 years supporting the Council for a Parliament of the Worlds’ Religions, an international interfaith movement in pursuit of a more just, sustainable and peaceful world. She’ll give is a brief history of the Parliament, beginning with the 1893 World’s Parliament of Religions held as part of the Chicago World’s Fair, the first time that leaders of eastern traditions met the leaders of western traditions.

Peter will talk about his new book, Expanding Power. His book aims to provide a practical, effective approach for helping us get more of what we want through “win/win engagement”.
