In this holiday season, TruthtoTell pauses to reflect on the annual promise of peace on earth and good will to all.  Universal peace may seem an unattainable goal, at least in the short term, but that doesn’t stop peace makers (and war resisters) from working creatively to bring peace with justice to our neighborhoods and the world. 

Tune in this Monday as TTT hosts Michelle Alimoradi and Tom O’Connell talk with four Twin Cities’ peace makers about their work, the lessons they are learning, and what gives them hope.
