The Friends of Niger board would like to send out the following message from Glen Blumhorst, the president of our National Peace Corps Association,
He talks about being deeply disturbed by the recent chorus of negative and aggressive speech targeting Muslims and refugees in our countries. He urges us to reach out, in large ways and small, to Muslims, refugees and other minorities in our communities.
Now is the time for us to rededicate ourselves to this third goal of the Peace Corps, to commit ourselves to education and constructive dialogue – to the open hand of America, rather than the closed fist.
A great reminder for the new year. Thank you and best wishes for 2016!
