Cheyenne Peace Chief and Mennonite Pastor Lawrence Hart

What: OCCPR Oklahoma Conscience Award Ceremony and Fundraiser
When: Saturday, May 11, 5 pm
Where: Church of the Open Arms, 3131 N. Penn., Oklahoma City

Join us for a simple ceremony in which we will highlight some of Mr. Hart’s contributions and service to his people, to Oklahoma and to the Earth and all its people. The program will also include an annual report about OCCPR’s work throughout the year providing legal support to conscientious objectors and other war resisters, as well as education and outreach on ending war and building global understanding and a culture of peace and justice.

The event is free and all are welcome. However, donations are appreciated, as this is OCCPR’s primary fundraiser for the year. We are funded solely by community support. If unable to attend, but wishing to make a donation, please see the mailing address and online donation link below. Donations are tax deductible.

Light refreshments will be served.

OCCPR is a local chapter of the War Resisters League, and a member of the Bradley Manning Support Network. For more info about OCCPR, see www.centerforconscience.org
