Every year since 2008 WR Nonviolence has organized a Human Peace Sign on the International Day Of Peace, the first day of the 10-day IDOPAN celebration.
This year we’re partnering with Human Peace Sign, 2008 Bobcat Bartolo and the Liberation, who will again be recognizing the International Day of Peace on 21 September as part of Peace Week, with another installment of An Evening of Peace. This year Bobcat Bartolo is teaming up with Rhythm & Brews Brewing Company, and we’ll be releasing more details as we move closer to the day.

United Nations International Day of Peace on Friday, 21 September 2018 members of WR Nonviolence and friends met to talk about peace. This was a Supplemental Discussion Night, to complement our regular project planning meetings held every Tuesday. The topic was supposed to be Finding Peace In Our Local Community, but discussion strayed to politics, and also on how to engage people in the community to participate in the projects put on by WR Nonviolence.
Participating were Peter, Michael, Allan, Barb and William, who were joined by David, Laurel and Bob. Unfortunately, Barb and William had to leave before Laurel had a chance to take pictures.
