Stories Of The American Friends Service Committee

BY DAVID GOODMAN AND NIGEL NOBLE, AFSC
AFSC was founded in 1917 during World War I. In accordance with their Quaker faith, the new organization gave young conscientious objectors ways to serve without enlisting in the military or taking lives. They drove ambulances, ministered to the wounded and stayed on in Europe after the armistice to rebuild war-ravaged communities. Today all over the world and in America itself in collaboration with local communities and neighborhoods, AFSC's programs foster understanding and reconciliation, promote economic development and food security, educate the public on issues such as nuclear disarmament and the realities of military service, and people take charge of their own destinies.

Relections On The War In Afghanistan - A Catalog

BY AFSC AND THE GODWIN TERNBACH MUSEUM
Windows and Mirrors is a traveling exhibit of artists and children's depictions of the war in Afghanistan.

The panels are shown in color and there is an explanation of the image and biography of the Artist who created it - around 38 panels in all.
