rev. LIZ WALKER TO SPEAK AT GRACE CHURCH

NEW BEDFORD Liz Walker, award winning journalist, documentary producer and human rights activist will speak at Grace Episcopal Church at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, April 26. The title of her presentation will be "The Risk of Love, The Art of Activism."

This presentation is part of the yearlong celebration of the 175th anniversary of Grace Church.

The Rev. Liz Walker, a 2005 graduate of Harvard Divinity School, is an ordained elder in the African Methodist Episcopal Church. She is on the ministerial staff of Bethel A.M.E. Church in Jamaica Plain.

Before entering divinity school, Walker anchored the evening newscasts for WBZ television for almost 20 years.

Her communication skills and faith have made her an important activist on a number of issues.

In 2001, Walker made her first trip to Sudan. Outraged at what she witnessed, she co-founded a grassroots organization that advocates for Sudanese women and children trying to rebuild their lives and their country. She also produced a documentary film entitled, "A Glory from the God."

Walker has made an impact and played an important role in supporting victims and survivors of domestic violence. In addition, she has raised money and awareness for important causes such as HIV/AIDS, breast cancer prevention and homelessness.

She is on the Board of Trustees of Andover Newton Theological School, the advisory board of the UNICEF United Nations Children's Fund in New England and is a member of the kitchen cabinet for One Family, a nonprofit organization focused on ending family homelessness in Massachusetts.

Grace Episcopal Church is located at the corner of County and School streets and is handicap-accessible. For more information, call the church office at (508) 993-0547, or visit www.gracechurchnb.com.

Honduras RPCV Jon Carson, 33, presided over thousands of workers as national field director for the Obama campaign and said the biggest challenge -- and surprise -- was the volume of volunteer help, including more than 15,000 "super volunteers," who were a big part of what made Obama's campaign so successful. PCOL endorses Jon Carson as the man who can revitalize the Peace Corps, bring it into the internet age, and meet Obama's goal of doubling the size of the Peace Corps by 2011.
