The 4th Campus Talk was an all day conference inviting notable speakers from different non-profits and institutions, students, and local community members to discuss the issue of Family and Marriage in a Pornified Culture.
On November 15th, CARP Grand Rapids hosted a Campus Talk with the theme “Peace Starts with Me” on Grand Rapids Community College (GRCC) campus. This event was co-sponsored by CARP and the Universal Peace Federation (UPF), a sister organization to CARP. A total of three professors, three faculty members, and 40 students attended.
The purpose of this Campus Talk was to inspire and empower students to be Ambassadors for Peace who seek points of convergence among people rather than those of divergence. We wanted to pass the message that only when I as an individual become peaceful can the society be peaceful. Hence, Peace Starts With Me.
This past weekend from October 26th to 27th, CARP staff and student leaders attended the Sexuality, Integrity, and the University (SIU) conference by the Love and Fidelity Network at Princeton University in New Jersey.
“It was amazing to connect to different kinds of people. People from different backgrounds were sharing similar values and fighting the same fight which was encouraging for me.” Kailey Teo, CARP UNLV
When I look back to where we started with CARP in Grand Rapids, I see God working.
