The following invitation is written by the Association of Students for Human Rights (ASHR) from the Korbel School of International Studies at Denver University:
On Saturday, May 22, 2010 at 7:30 pm in the Mercury Cafe, the Association of Students for Human Rights (ASHR) from the Korbel School of International Studies at DU wishes to invite you to Composing Cultures of Peace, our second annual awareness concert that emphasizes the great need to support rehabilitation efforts in post-conflict areas. In addition to informative speakers on the topic of post-conflict rehabilitation, drawing prizes, and a cash bar, the concert will feature bands Sun Red, Kissing Party, and Action Packed Thrill Ride.
All proceeds from the concert will go to Musicians without Borders, an international non-profit organization who works in refugee camps and post-conflict zones throughout the world, providing struggling children and families with free community-based education, summer camps, and services focused around music, art, and recreation.
As witnessed in the well-known cases of Palestine, Rwanda, Haiti, and the Balkans, the cessation of conflict or tragedy rarely equals the cessation of suffering and hardship in any given region. ASHR supports rehabilitation organizations like Musicians Without Borders who realize that even after a conflict ends, physical, psychological, and social wounds require healing of all kinds.
Please join us on May 22 to learn more about this topic, see great bands, and fundraise for an incredible cause.
Tickets are just $10 and will be sold at the door.
We hope to see you there!
