Kinneret Golan Hoz grew up learning that to be a good citizen, she had to be a good soldier. It's an idea that is deeply entrenched in Israeli society, she says. Indeed, she herself served as an officer in the Israeli army.

But Kinneret’s belief in peace and justice compelled her, as an adult, to refuse to be part of the mainstream. “If you do not want to be part of the problem, then you have to be part of the solution,” she says.

AFSC, in partnership with African Service Coalition (ASC) and Avalon Community Center, would like for you to join women from around Greensboro in a time of sharing and fellowship. This is an opportunity to not only create crafts but create connections with some of the women who might have received a Refugee Welcome kit through the Humanitarian Response Program. Come and meet the families that we are welcoming to our community.
