Dear Friends,
The Midcoast Outreach and Peace Center has been well launched under the capable leadership of Sue Rockwood as Coordinator.  A number of activities are either planned or under way at the Meeting House.

As Clerk of the Program Committee for MOPC
, I invite members of the meeting to send me/us your suggestions for possible speakers and/or programs that might be staged under the auspices of MOPC.

Several programs to provide services to local residents (e.g. children, families, elderly) are already under consideration. What would be most helpful is to receive suggestions for speakers or issue programs
that might be held at the meeting house in coming months. You may know of someone suitable who will be in the area this summer or a local person who has recently had direct experience in relation to current issues of concern.

Please send me your ideas and suggestions so that we can consider them in timely fashion and begin to build up our issue/program outreach.
Thank you, Jim Matlack (207) 236-0903

The Peace Center grows from a commitment to peaceful ways to resolve conflict and ways of living that protect our natural environment. Through public dialogue in our Midcoast Maine communities we seek to understand and support policies and practices that promote peace and environmental justice.

Since its founding in 2008, The Center has convened public dialogues and held film series on U.S. foreign engagements in conflicts in the Middle East, Central America and Asia, on issues of sustainable farming and fishing in Maine and on alternative energy resources in Maine. These programs are convened in collaboration with like-minded groups and congregations. Each gathering seeks to share personal and professional concerns and to take collective initiatives to witness and strengthen our community commitments to peace and environmental justice.

The Camden Conference was founded in 1987 as a nonprofit, non-partisan educational organization whose mission is to foster informed discourse on world issues. In the years since, it has convened its annual Conference on the third weekend of February in the historic Camden Opera House, drawing some of the best minds on foreign policy to share their insights and expertise on a range of global issues with the community. Conference topics have included The Making of American Foreign Policy, The Influence of the News Media on Foreign Policy, US-Japan Relations, Globalization, The Politics of Energy and Water, Religion, Global Leadership and a number of conferences focusing on regions of the world.
