Intervention Specialist for the American Samoa Community College (ASCC) Community Natural Resources (CNR) Childhood Healthy Living (CHL) Project, Agnes M. Vargo during the 2nd National ‘Pace e Bene’ teleconference that took place at the ASCC/CNR Wellness Center last Thursday.
 
The Pace e Bene is a new campaign against violence that invites people everywhere to practice and study nonviolence, connect with others and take public, nonviolent action for a more peaceful and just world.
 
According to their website, paceenene.org, Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service is an independent, nondenominational 501 (c) organization with offices in Oakland, Chicago, Montreal and Las Vegas. Its mission is to foster a just and peaceful world through nonviolence education, community-building and action. Pace e Bene means, “peace and all good” in Italian.
 
Vargo, who is the local organizer of the movement, spoke with people from over 20 states in the US during the teleconference sharing their ideas, thoughts and plans for campaigning against violence.
