June 2015 Funding Letter

Dear Friends of the Long Island Alliance,

2015 marks the 30th Anniversary of the Long Island Alliance and our work together to build a world without war, a world free of nuclear weapons, a world where all can live in peace with dignity.

The LI Alliance, with Professor Michael D’Innocenzo and our Peace Fellows, do a visioning session – in which students imagine the world they want to see in ten years. We do this in classes and in the Center Civic Engagement’s programs on Day of Dialogue in the fall and Earth and Globalization Days in the spring semester. In some sessions, we examine the U.S. role in the world.
We especially want to thank you for your ongoing support of our efforts to involve the next generation in peacemaking, social justice and citizen activism.
The LI Alliance Peace Fellows Program, in collaboration with Hofstra University’s Center for Civic Engagement, has been a priority focus of the Alliance for the last three years. The Peace Fellows Program is a mini-peace studies introduction to students on the issues of nonviolence, militarism, disarmament and human security. Students also receive training in deliberative dialogue techniques and issue advocacy.

We ask you to contribute to this unique ten-week program (funded by the LI Alliance) with Hofstra faculty participation. It is offered each spring semester. Peace Fellows meet monthly in the fall to continue their dialogue on global issues and to discuss ways of promoting peace on campus and in the community. We have a matching grant for the Peace Fellows Program. So please be as generous as you can be.

It is up to us to carry the next generation into the future, to a world free of the scourge of war. It is up to us to teach them peace.
Thank you again for your strong support and commitment. Your contribution is so very important to building the world we wish for ourselves and for the next generation.
Margaret Melkonian, Executive Director

Andrea Libresco, President, LI Alliance Board
