Ariel Vegosen is honored to have just returned from the FOR delegation to Iran and a personal peace journey to Palestine and Israel . She is a conflict resolution specialist, professional dialogue facilitator, ropes course instructor, youth educator, peace activist, organic therapist, and world traveler. Some of her most inspirational work includes Seeds of Peace, Code Pink Women for Peace, and the political theater piece An Olive on the Seder Plate about Jewish people wrestling with the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza . She currently works for Mintwood Media, a progressive PR collective serving the peace movement, organic and Fair Trade farmer movement, and other social justice organizations.  On Sunday, February 15th at 12pm, Ariel will speak on her experience as an American Jew in Iran at the Manatee Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 322 15th Street West in downtown Bradenton.  She will touch on the truth she discovered and the difference between what the media tells us and what is really happening on the ground in Iran.  Ariel will also share about her journey to Palestine and the intensity of being a Jew who believes in an end to the occupation. She will share her unique experience in the Middle East at a time when Gaza was invaded and America hinges on attacking Iran.  Ariel speaks from her heart but with great intelligence and analytical aptitude.
