Celebrate the International Day of Peace with the Center for Dialogue and Resolution (virtual celebration)
We hope you’ll join the Center for Dialogue and Resolution and the national and global community of peaceful souls in observance of the International Day of Peace, on September 21st, 2021.
“The questions that we think face the country are questions which in one sense are much deeper than civil rights. They’re questions which go very much to the bottom of mankind and people. They’re questions which have repercussions in terms of a whole intergenerational affairs and relations. They’re questions which go to the very root of our society. What kind of society will we be?” — Bob (Robert Paris) Moses
This year is CDR’s 40th anniversary. It also happens to be the 40th anniversary of the International Day of Peace. To celebrate the many years of promoting ideals of peace in our community, and around the globe, CDR is hosting a day of virtual discussions, workshops, and speakers.
Day of Peace Schedule of Events:
12pm: Peace Panel – Everyone in attendance will observe a moment of silence in solidarity with communities around the world, to celebrate the ideals of peace and non-violence. Following the moment of silence, we’ll hear from prominent members of the peace community.
1pm-4pm: Discussions and workshops on non-violent communication and restorative justice.
5:30pm-7:00pm: Launch of a new CDR program promoting social cohesion and community in Lane County
This celebration of Peace is an opportunity for us all to come together as a peace community, to observe moments of silence, and to reflect on our hopes. Our communities may not currently be what we want them to be, but the time is ripe for us to make things what we hope and wish to see.
What kind of society will we be?
Our collective observance of the Day of Peace is not only a celebration of non-violence and hope, but the launch of a new program and effort in our community that we all know we need.
We hope you’ll join us!
