Pax Christi Michigan’s 35th Annual State Conference,  “Breaking the Silence: Confronting Race, Power & Privilege,” was a wonderful event, featuring Pax Christi USA’s National Director, Patricia Chappell, SNDdeN, Program Director, Anne-Louise Nadeau, SNDdeN, and special guest Ana Garcia-Ashley, National Director of the Gamaliel Network. Held at Cristo Rey Church in Lansing on Saturday April 23, 2016 , the day was full of introspection and a renewed conviction to eradicating racism.

Pax Christi USA has been at the forefront of confronting structural racism, and these powerful women are leading the way in that movement. Also honored were Mary Hennig as our Purple Ribbon for Peace award winner, and Aida Cuadrado as our Young Adult Peacemaker.
