On Wednesday, March 4, 2009, in honor of International Women's Day, Wallenberg CC members along with the Levantine Cultural Center and CodePink helped to coordinate "Women of Gaza," a trans-national radio conference broadcast that was carried by KPFK in Los Angeles which linked 100+ activists (and many more by radio) with those who were part of an international delegation in Cairo negotiating with Egyptian officials to deliver 2,000 gift baskets with personal care items, toys and sweets to the women and children of Gaza. The delegation came at the invitation of the Gaza Gender Initiative of the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), the first of its kind to enter the region since July 2007. Several days after our broadcast permission was granted, and goodwill traversed Rafah Crossing. Middle East Peace Education and Dialogue is one of our CC's main areas focus.
In January, members of our CC visited Israel and the Palestinian territories to meet with local CC members of URI's Global Council, the Jerusalem Peacemakers, Trust-EMUN and the Interfaith Encounter Association in order to strengthen ties and to witness the work going on the ground there. We took part in several facilitated interfaith dialogues in Israel and the West Bank and joined with local URI CC members to visit a Tel-Aviv hospital to pray with both Israelis and Palestinians wounded during the Israel-Gaza conflict.
In June, Wallenberg introduced the peace and conflict resolution educational curriculum for "Encounter Point" to members of the North American Interfaith Network at its annual conference at Unity Village in Kansas City, Missouri. There were 40 faith leaders who took part in learning about the substantive programs in the region which are working to secure safety and security for all. In July, CC members met with officials for Mayor Villaraigosa of the City of Los Angeles and successfully petitioned him to sign on the Mayors for Peace 2020 vision--a protocol to be added to the Nuclear Non-proliferation treaty calling for a roadmap for nuclear disarmament by 2015 and a nuclear weapons free world by 2020.
On Sunday, August 9th, on the South Lawn of the Los Angeles City Hall, Roger Eaton built on this momentum of this success and organized a "Never Again" rally for nuclear disarmament in commemoration of the destruction wrought at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. About 150 members of the greater Los Angeles community took part.

Youth forming this Cooperation Circle have named it, “Realities-Beyond-The-Truths” because their aim is to go beyond their personal beliefs and to strengthen relationships to better understand one another, as equal ‘Members of One Human Family’. They plan to nurture a culture of respect for freedom of religion and all Human beings. They have come together from different backgrounds, religions, and cultures, and hope to nurture a critical mass of non-violent relationships to be more connected with the people of the human family and to raise awareness of people living in conflict areas. As peace activists, they want to help the young, arising leaders to stand up and to take actions in their communities for sustaining a true and maintained peace. They are students at United World College. Most of them have experienced the cost of wars and conflicts in their countries and wish to change a part of the negative culture of homophobia and war-torn countries for the people of the human family. They want to be connected with everyone on this planet, and together to learn from one another, and to give children and the younger generation some tools to build their countries.
