We are a grass-roots anti-racist community organization working to preserve the plurality and diversity of discussions about the Middle East and other related topics, advocating for peace and security for all. Our group embraces fact-based, respectful dialogue, mutual recognition and cooperation to promote justice. Through the advancement of educational, cultural and social ties in our local community we aim to promote unity and peace.
ICUCME is pronounced: “I see you — see me,” because seeing one another as whole human beings who share the same kinds of hopes and fears is the path to building real peace.
Cornell Africana studies professor Riché Richardson explores Martin Luther King Jr.’s philosophy of non-violence, followed by a discussion of protests in the Middle East in the light of Dr. King’s legacy. May 22, 7 pm, Tompkins County Public Library Borg Warner Room, Ithaca.
