Unitarian Universalist Church

In the city that birthed the United Nations, helped launch the International Day of Peace, and was named for the peaceful St. Francis, we invite you to an important new event that addresses how the Bay Area can lead the way in reducing rates of violence in our nation. We’ll explore creating a movement in which citizens, non-profits, government and business can work together to create a powerful shift to a more creative and collaborative culture of peace.

Get involved in making the Bay Area a pioneer of peacebuilding and a shining
example of collabative community!

Co-sponsors: The Peace Alliance, Urban Peace Movement, Change SF, Pathways to Peace, Institute of Noetic Sciences, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights, Global Coherence Initiative.

Host Committee: Josh Becker, Urusa Fahim, Krishanti Dharmaraj, James Hanusa, Dorka Keehn, Regina Kulik Scully, Avon Mattison, Bonny Meyer, Devaa Haley Mitchell, Lora O’Connor, Rachel Pfeffer, Adrienne Pon, Sudeep Motupalli Rao, Lateefah Simon, Maya Dillard Smith, Claudia Welss.

The main public event is free, but you will need to RSVP in order to guarantee your seat.  We expect a full house. Everyone who attends will be invited (and hopefully inspired!) to make a financial contribution but it is not required.
