Bill Beachy Executive Director

BILL BEACHY, the executive director of the Topeka Center for Peace and Justice, which helps pull together the yearly event, said the supper is an opportunity to renew fellowship with old friends and a venue to meet new friends.
"We need to have fun with each other," Beachy said.
Beachy said he has long admired Overstreet and her work in the community. She is a founder of the Unity Council of Topeka, an Appeals Committee member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, among many other past and current designations. Overstreet also writes a weekly column for The Topeka Capital-Journal. She champions social and economic justice, he said, and her heart has long been committed to it.
