April 9, US Film Launch, Burma’s Peace Potential, “Portraits of Diversity”

Every day in Burma, monks, doctors, teachers, even a popular reggae singer from Yangon, set examples of unity and cooperation, in contrast to headlines about violence between Buddhists and Muslims.

On April 9, the U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington DC on April 9, in partnership with the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, will host a screening of a film series highlighting such stories, Portraits of Diversity, followed by a discussion of how these examples can inform support for the country’s transition. The panelists will include a Buddhist monk from Burma. Please visit the USIP website for this event for more information.
