In partnership with the Conejo Valley Interfaith Association, reGeneration participated in the 9/11 15th Anniversary Peace walk. Read more about the event in the Ventura County Star article: “9/11 15th Anniversary Peace Walk at California Lutheran University,” here.
The attacks of September 11, 2001 marked the worst terrorist attack in modern history and the deadliest foreign attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor. In the 15 years since those attacks, the world has seen a rising tide of ideological extremism, refugees, and terrorist incidents associated with the Middle East, bringing fear and divisiveness to global and local communities – making peace literacy and quality childhood education in crisis zones and disadvantaged communities all the more critically important.
We are delighted to publish this response to the recent concert Together in the City of Angels launching the newly established Southern California Muslim-Jewish Forum. reGeneration is a founding member of the Southern California Muslim-Jewish Forum.
“The uplifting joy and brotherhood was contagious. Side by side people from these two beautiful religions sang, danced, recited spoken word, rapped, told stories and prayed. I witnessed the realized possibility of love and peace.
