NARF Peacemaking Initiative

New website here. There are numerous upcoming events listed there as well. One that we have not yet announced is here (pdf), an event in Oklahoma on April 23-24.

(on a side note, NARF does a great job with its website addresses for these projects, making them very easy to pass on at events or when speaking: narf [dot] org [slash] icwa ; narf [dot] org [slash] peacemaking. It’s a little thing, but much appreciated.)
