YMCA Peace Week takes place November 18-25, 2017
Peace Week is a time when we celebrate the presence of peace in our local and global communities, and reflect on the peace-building work that happens all year both inside and outside the Y.
What is peace?
More than the absence of violence and conflict, peace is the presence of conditions like fairness, inclusion, empathy, security, and respect for diversity. Peace is also the ongoing work of building and rebuilding these conditions. The Y is dedicated to strengthening the foundations of community-and peace is fundamental to strong and healthy communities.
