Dear Friends,

 

Our thoughts are with all of our People to People Delaware friends and membership during this challenging time with the coronavirus and sheltering in place.  We hope you are safe and healthy.  Given the current situation PTPDE will be offering some programs on Zoom.  Look for an announcement about a program on recognizing and reducing cultural barriers in June.   Our membership year is from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021 and we invite you to consider joining PTPDE and our mission of peace through understanding in our country and throughout the world. Enclosed you will find a membership form or you can also register on our website.

Our chapter is committed to bringing people together through exciting cultural exchange programs, hosting opportunities with people of other nations, and interactive humanitarian efforts. This past year, activities have included a program about Swedish and Filipino immigration to America and participating in an international mural project with middle-school students working with the theme ‘One People, One World’.  Our partnership with the Global Studies Department at the University of Delaware provided opportunities to host scholars from around the world.  Most recently, we presented a panel discussion about conflicts in South Asia.

Please learn more about our events on our website at https://ptpde.org and look for us on Facebook. We always welcome more participation on our Board and committees.  If you would like to become more involved with our mission and programs please contact me, our co-president Jean Raleigh at jean.raleigh@ptpde.org or our Executive Director Ellen Hughes at ellen.hughes@ptpde.org.  We deeply appreciate your support.

 

Sincerely,

Sharon Cooper
