Celebrate International Day of Peace with us on Thursday, 9/22
If you can get away from work Thursday, September 22 from 10-11:30 am, join us for a powerful event at St. Mary’s Center (which provides community, services, and organizing opportunities for homeless seniors who are also community leaders), 925 Brockhurst St., Oakland.
Both St. Mary’s and the Oakland Peace Center know that “peace begins when the hungry are fed,” and that “peace is not an absence of conflict; peace is the presence of justice.” This event, led by the Council of Elders at St. Mary’s as well as OPC partners, will give you that jolt of inspiration to do the hard work of peace in which you’re already engaged. We hope to see you there. And please help spread the news!
