FULTON, Ill. — The Volunteer Educators at the Windmill Cultural Center in Fulton invite the public to attend the next program of the season.

Lori Freudenberg, community outreach director for the Sisters of St. Francis Franciscan Peace Center, will speak at Wild Winter Wednesday at the Windmill Cultural Center in Fulton at 9 a.m. Jan. 10.

The Franciscan Peace Center was established by the Sisters of St. Francis to promote active nonviolence and peacemaking.

Freudenberg’s presentation will focus on Franciscan Peace Center programs, such as Share Our Sandwiches, which began in 2014 to aid people in the community who are experiencing food scarcity; the monthly Social Justice Film series; and other issues such as immigration reform, human trafficking and the recent campaign “Hate Has No Home Here.”

The public is invited to gather at 9 a.m. for coffee, tea and baked de Immigrant milled flour treats. The program begins at 9:15 a.m.

The building is accessible to people with disabilities and the program is partially funded through a DS Flikkema grant.
