Last week I attended a Washington, DC conference on Israel and Palestine hosted by the Telos Group. It was an absolute pleasure meeting and speaking with a wide variety of likeminded professionals, filmmakers, leaders of faith, humanitarians, and Congressional representatives from both sides of the aisle. I gained a lot of new support for WAR-TOYS as well as new perspective on the conflict. It was refreshing to hear messages that were simultaneously pro-Israel, pro-Palestine, and pro-peace.
The weeks ahead will be filled with follow ups and continued planning for my next trip overseas. I look forward to working with staff from the NGO's and other organizations that have recently come on board. Thanks again to the Telos Group for their kind invitation to the conference. I continue to be humbled by all the support and encouragement the project is receiving.
