December 9th- 6 pm
Holiday Dinner Forum with Peaceworks
Friends Meeting in Chatham or by Zoom
The PeaceWorks community will host a very special holiday dinner forum with global coffee expert and Director of the Quixote Center Kim Lamberty.
Kim will help us zoom out from the tiny community of 50 families that grow our holiday coffee on a mountaintop in Nicaragua to the realities of the global coffee trade, also discussing the challenges of small farmers like those PeaceWorks supports more broadly and the work of the Quixote Center.
Join us in-person at the Friends Meeting in Chatham or by Zoom no matter where you are. Dinner is at 6:00pm and our conversation with Kim at 7:00pm.
RSVP to is Susan Steiner, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
