Building Democracy Salon

In February, 2009, TheCommunity.com co-hosted a salon with Nobel Laureate and President of East Timor Jose Ramos-Horta to introduce the Zones of Peace program to the Hollywood community.

At the private salon, at the home of actress and human rights activist Anne Archer, President Ramos-Horta spoke to approximately 75 artists, film industry leaders, and foundation personnel and answered questions about the program. Anne’s organization, Artists for Human Rights, which activates artists to raise awareness of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights worldwide, is a partner organization in the Zones of Peace program.
