2021 International Day of Peace - Peace Not War!

Peace sign over the earth and a not bombing image "End the War Economy; Our planet needs peace" with San Jose Peace and Justice Center logo and "International Day of Peace 2021"

Sixty Four Years! – -- $6400 Challenge

September 21 is International Day of Peace and we are commemorating 64 years since the founding of the San Jose Peace and Justice Center in 1957.
At a time of great struggle with the sustained pandemic, climate crisis, continuing wars of empire and so many needs going unmet in our communities, it is important to reflect and connect with one another.
Join us for a virtual commemoration on Thursday, September 21 at 5:30 pm. We’ll share our ongoing video project with photos of peace activists and events over the years. The video will be shared at about 5:45 pm with the rest of the time to catch up and chat with others. We hope to see you in the Zoom bubble.
We will have Otter.ai transcription and Zoom auto transcription. Please reach out to Michele at michele@sanjosepeace.org for other access needs.
