“Peace is possible – a peace that is born from the truth that comes from each one of us and from all of us. It is a painful truth…it is a liberating and humanizing truth…It is a truth that challenges each one of us to recognize our individual and collective responsibility and to commit ourselves to action.”
Bishop Gerardi, April 24, 1998
“Breaking the Silence means listening to those who’ve been silent for far too long, and once the silence is broken, it is amazing what you can hear.”
Scott Zoltok, Intern at the New Hope Foundation (2012-2013)
“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”
Aboriginal activists group, Queensland, 1970s
