URI West Africa Participates in Accelerate Peace Conference 

07/16/2019

The Accelerate Peace conference took place on June 26 and 27, 2019 at the Hoover Institution on the Stanford University campus in California, USA. It brought together peacebuilders from around the world to discuss challenges to peace, both in their local communities and on an international level, and also to discuss action-oriented solutions to benefit all of humanity.

Musical performances by Pato Banton and Antoinette Rootsdawtah, of Pato Banton's Spiritual Family, a URI Cooperation Circle, provided an energetic soundtrack to the two days of the conference and to the Circles of Light gala on the night of June 26. Their talent and music got the crowd dancing, which was an especially meaningful point of connection for attendees who did not share a language in common.
