Over the years, US Servas National Conference has brought people together from all over the country to advance efforts to creating a more just and peaceful world. Recently, the need for Servas has become greater than ever before in the United States, and it has become increasingly important for people across different cultures and backgrounds to come together and take a stand for world peace. As we celebrate our 70th anniversary in 2019, we continue to advocate for racial, social, and environmental justice and equality by promoting world peace one conversation at a time. With this in mind, we are pleased to unveil this year’s theme, “70 Years of Servas: Peace, Justice & Travel”.
More than 120 members came to join us at Dominican University, in San Rafeal, California, for the annual conference. We hope you enjoyed it, were energized, inspired, and made new friends — we certainly did!
