In the past KW Peace would hold occasional pot luck meetings – just a time for folks to share what their group’s been up to, to chat about projects, successes, difficulties, share resources etc.
The format of our online meeting will be to (re)introduce ourselves, talk about the group(s) you work with, and whatever else we want to chat about.
If you have thoughts or questions please let us know.
Looking forward to virtually meeting
We regret announcing that our 16th Nonviolence Day in the Park will be cancelled. We felt that there is too much uncertainty in the coming weeks and months.
WR Nonviolence continues to meet virtually every Tuesday to plan our way forward. Contact us if you’d like to join the discussion – how can we communicate the importance of nonviolence during our current pandemic?
The 16th Nonviolence Day in the Park is scheduled for Saturday September 26, noon to 5pm on Roos Island, Victoria Park, Kitchener.
During this Stage 3 of the COVID recovery program, visit Kitchener Responds to COVID-19 for the latest updates.
