21st Annual Kateri Tekakwitha Peace Conference

Aug 6, 2019

The 2019 Kateri Peace Conference takes place Friday, August 16 and Saturday, August 17 at The National Kateri Tekakwitha Shrine in Fonda, New York. The 21st Annual conference is entitled “Defying Extinction - Nurturing a Garden of Resilience in the Face of Climate Crisis.”

For over 20 years the conference has met on the site of an historic Mohawk Village. This year’s conference will examine the painful existential threat of climate collapse and war.

The conference will feature presenters, educators, artists and special events.

We are joined by conference organizers John Amidon and Maureen Aumand and by one of the conferences presenters, Dahr Jamail, the author of “The End of Ice: Bearing Witness and Finding Meaning in the Path of Climate Disruption.” Jamail is also a Truthout staff reporter and has written numerous articles on climate disruption.
