Adventist Peace Radio, Episode 19: Walla Walla University Peace Week 2018

Welcome to Adventist Peace Radio, the podcast of the Adventist Peace Fellowship. We invite you to subscribe to the podcast through iTunesGoogle Play, or Stitcher.


In this episode, Jeff Boyd interviews three Walla Walla University students who share how they planned this year’s peace week.

In the first interview, Katie Pekar shares about her role as the Peace Week coordinator. Katie is a graduate student in the Biology Department. Next, Kelsey Duran, who is a junior social work major and the president of the Social Work Club, describes two events—the Privilege Walk as well as the community march. Finally, Jonathan Muriu reflects on the Friday evening gathering coordinated by the Black Student Christian Forum. The guiding question of this final gathering was: How can I be a peacemaker? Jonathan is a junior bioengineering major with a pre-med concentration. He is also the BSCF president.
