Dorothy Day, journalist and social activist, wrote “we can, to a certain extent, change the world; we can work for the oasis, the little cell of joy and peace in a harried world. We can throw our pebble in the pond and be confident that its ever-widening circle will reach around the world.” Converge Lecture Series is an attempt to create ‘a little cell of joy and peace’ in Colorado Springs, CO.
Converge Lecture Series is in need of scholarship funding for area high school students, a ‘marketing map’ for social engagement, someone to teach literature and speaking skills to local students
Harrison School District is making educational gains that are worthy of our investment (.008 dropout rate; 79.8% graduation rate).
“IN THIS TIME OF POLITICAL DIVISION, A SERIES LIKE CONVERGE IS ESSENTIAL, IN ITS ABILITY TO REMIND US THAT OUR DIFFERENCES ARE SMALL AND NEGOTIABLE, COMPARED TO ALL THAT WE HAVE IN COMMON.” — George Saunders
