Cecilia Zárate, who was recently awarded the Global Citizen of the Year Award from the Dane County Chapter of the United Nations, and Jack Laun, Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, will speak on the prospects for peace with justice in Colombia between the Colombian Government and FARC guerrillas. Both groups are now devoted to finalizing a peace agreement which would bring an end to a conflict that has persisted for over 50 years.

Cecilia Zárate and Jack Laun are co-founders of the Colombia Support Network (CSN): an activist grassroots organization that works through sister communities to help Colombians create a peaceful participatory democracy and an economically just Colombian society. CSN supports and provides political space for organizations and individuals that work for a non-violent, just political solution to the conflict in Colombia.
