Three-Day Negotiation Aims to End Israeli/Palestinian Conflict


ST. LOUIS–Fontbonne University will host the Minds of Peace Experiment, a public negotiation congress featuring three Israelis and three Palestinians who will meet for a total of ten hours to negotiate a peace agreement between the two groups. This event is free of charge and open to the participation of the public.

The program will be held on three consecutive evenings: Tuesday, Feb. 22 (4:30 - 8:30 p.m.); Wednesday, Feb. 23 (4:30 - 8:30 p.m.); and Thursday, Feb. 24 (4:30 - 7:30 p.m.). The event will take place in Room 203 of Anheuser-Busch Hall located on the Clayton campus of Fontbonne University, 6800 Wydown Blvd. St. Louis, MO 63105. 

The Minds of Peace Experiment will be moderated by its creators, Sapir Handelman (an Israeli) and Mazen Badra (a St. Louis Palestinian), and strives to create the social conditions for peace through grassroots efforts.

A light supper will be served to the first 50 guests who RSVP to missionintegration@fontbonne.edu. Others are welcome to bring a brown bag dinner or purchase food on campus.
