Midcoast Outreach and Peace Center Hires New Coordinator

Members of the Midcoast Meeting of Friends' Oversight Committee on Outreach hire an Outreach Coordinator for their newly dubbed Midcoast Outreach and Peace Center.


Sue Rockwood (pictured at left in blue) will be setting up office space at Midcoast Friends Meeting and getting ready to help our vision of a vibrant, supportive Outreach and Peace Center expand.  Sue knows the Meeting has already been very active presenting programming in area venues and expects there will be lots of help as we bring home some of our expertise. She starts April 1st.  

More details, like office hours and upcoming initiatives and events, will be found on Sue’s new blog -- http://midcoastcenter.blogspot.com


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.
