Around the Table: Creating Peace at the Advoz Annual Dinner

Nearly every day, Advoz brings youth and adults around tables to make transformative dialogue happen in our community and to help youth and adults add their voice and build tomorrow’s peaceable world.

A young man faces police for spraying illegal graffiti but makes things right in Advoz’s restorative dialogue, meeting and working with a professional artist who later mentors him in his career path. Advoz’s 2019 Around the Table Annual Dinner features the unique ways that youth and adults have created peace. From spraying graffiti, to studying graphic design, we can learn from the resilience and empowerment people experience in our face-to-face dialogue.

Join us for Advoz’s 2019 signature benefit event, Around the Table, an evening of learning, connecting and empowering our community’s reconciling potential. Treat yourself and your guests to a plated dinner at the Eden Resort, a fun live and silent auction and stories about Advoz’s work on the theme:
