International Day of Peace

Get Connected Icon
Until   Sep 21, 2017

Description

What? Hundreds in Bellingham gather every year on International Day of Peace in solidarity with people around the world. In 1982, the United Nations declared this day an annual worldwide 24-hour cease-fire to envision what our world can look like without weapons, violence, and oppression. 
 
This year marks the 15th year that the Whatcom Peace and Justice Center has hosted an event to gather on this day in Bellingham. We are seeking volunteers to help make this event possible. 

When? Thursday, September 21st, from 6-8:30pm 
 
Where? The Majestic (1027 N Forest)
 
How can you help? We are looking for about 20-25 volunteers. In mid/late August, we need people to put up posters. The day of the event, we'll need a set-up and clean-up crew, as well as greeters. We are also seeking bakers to make desserts. Email Natalie at NatalieJeanKeiserBaloy@gmail.com to sign up. 
 
 
If you would like to sponsor this event, contact the Whatcom Peace and Justice Center at 360-734-0217 or office@whatcompjc.org.
