Info about Anna: Anna Baltzer is a 27-year-old Jewish-American Columbia graduate, Fulbright Scholar, and two-time volunteer with the International Women's Peace Service, a human rights organization based in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. She has spent most of the year on tour around the U.S. with a presentation and book documenting her personal experiences, observations, and photographs of six months in the West Bank supporting Palestinian and Israeli nonviolent resistance against the Occupation. Her presentation covers — among other things — checkpoints, settlements, Israeli activism, environmental issues, the Wall, and the often unreported Palestinian nonviolent resistance movement.

Directions to Arborwood Condos Clubhouse: North of Valmont Road, from 30th Street, turn east on O'Neal "Parkway" (which is one block north of Glenwood). Then turn right at O'Neal Circle. Go about halfway around the circle and you'll see the clubhouse in the center, next to the pool. MapQuest (almost correct, 'X' is not quite right).

Colorado Jews for a Just Peace is a Jewish organization formed in response to the escalating violence in the Middle East, and holding as our basic principles the ideals of compassion, social justice, and the value of every human life. We believe that the route to peace for the Israelis and the Palestinians must include:

  1. Israel's withdrawal from the Occupied Territories, including withdrawal from the settlements,
  2. The establishment of a sovereign, territorially viable Palestinian state, and
  3. Strong security guarantees for both states.
