SFCG President and Founder, John Marks will be featured as a panelist at Georgetown’s ‘Conflict to Peace’ conference. John Marks will be a panelist regarding the Israel-Palestine conflict. Senator George Mitchell, the former US Special Envoy for Middle East Peace will be a featured speaker on that panel.
