The Culture of Peace Alliance (COPA) Coordinating Council is currently composed of members who worked together for a year to develop the vision, mission, purpose, and structure of this organization. Throughout this collaboration process, the council members deepened their capacity to synergistically learn from one another, to personally practice peace in their coordinating council endeavors, and to have fun in the process. Brief introductions to members follow.
Sat Bir Kaur Khalsa - President
Sat Bir is a foster parent in Tucson. She arrived here in the mid-80s. As a Sikh, she strongly upholds the human rights of all people to live, love, and share peacefully. She volunteers with several community groups and organizations in Tucson as an expression of her faith. Sat Bir states, “I am grateful for my experience with the COPA Coordinating Council. We have practiced nonviolent communication with one another, as well as consensus in our decision-making. I welcome your interest in COPA. I welcome those who will partner with us, even if just by visiting this web site.”
