Women In Communications of Detroit Hosts Program on Peace Communications

DETROIT, Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Brenda Naomi Rosenberg, the executive director of the nationally acclaimed Children of Abraham Project leads a panel discussion called "Give Peace a Shout," sponsored by Women In Communications (WIC) of Detroit to remember the fourth anniversary of the September 11th American tragedy.

The event occurs at 6 p.m., September 14 at the Arab American National Museum (http://www.theaanm.org/ ), 13624 Michigan Avenue in Dearborn. Panelists include Rosenberg (http://www.nccj.org/ ), recipient of Women in Communication's most recent Vanguard award for communication excellence, along with Lisa Lapides-Sawicki, co-director of Youth Under Construction (http://www.youngpop.com/ ), a positive hip-hop movement, and Jackie Perreca. She directs marketing at Blue Moon Partners, and led publicity efforts for a Michigan fundraiser for Seeds of Peace (http://www.seedsofpeace.org/ ), the nonprofit organization that is dedicated to empowering young people from conflict regions, primarily the Middle East, with the leadership skills required to advance reconciliation and coexistence.

Women In Communications highlights three communicators who use their consummate time and talents to bring conversations for peace that bridge political, geographic, religious and social lines. Together they help southeast Michigan journalists, publicists and marketing coordinators to discuss the concept: "Give Peace a Shout."

The Children of Abraham Project, under the auspices of the National Conference for Community and Justice and the University of Michigan Arts and Citizenship Program is currently producing a documentary for international distribution. The poignant discussions that take the form of improv theater and audience participation have propelled the group to appear in a CBS special and productions in schools, religious centers and community theaters. Its goal is to foster peace and dialog.

The cost is $30 for members and $40 for guests, including light appetizers and a tour of the museum. Call the WIC reservation line at (248) 652-1420, for more information.
