On Dec.28, 2012, AFSC Iowa joined with several other groups in coming together as community to weave a circle of protection around our children from violence. People gathered at Hubble Elementary School in Des Moines to show support for a conversation on how people can protect our children from violence.

Engage our influence in our groups, faith communities. Spend time with children, reading, in play, and talking together.
