Psychology Today blog Are We Done Fighting?

CFSC’s book Are We Done Fighting? Building Understanding in a World of Hate and Division was published in May 2019 by New Society Publishers. Since then, Peace Program Coordinator Matt Legge, who wrote it—with significant inputs from many different Friends—as part of his work for CFSC, has been busy. He has given dozens of presentations about the book in four provinces, and done print, radio, and TV interviews. He has also facilitated workshops using exercises found in the book. Below in chronological order are links to some of the coverage of the book:
