Local community builders to present
peace-building strategies at Delray Beach Library


The Selma voting rights campaign is one of four peace-building events to be discussed

How do we make peace in our communities, in our homes, and in our hearts? What are the most successful peace-building tactics and strategies? Join us as we explore answers to these questions by looking at peace-related events and how they relate to our own time and place.

You are invited to See Peace & Pursue It, a presentation in honor of International Peace Day. The event is scheduled to take place Saturday, September 22 from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. at the Delray Beach Public Library.

Presentation to include insightful analysis from the following local community building professionals:

Plus, peace songs to be performed by Delray Beach musician C.S. Leary.

Attendees should come away from See Peace & Pursue It with a better appreciation of the strategy and practice of peace work, and ideas for contributing to local peace-building efforts.

See Peace & Pursue It marks the beginning of Auroras Voice’s efforts to offer MLK-style peace-building education in Palm Beach County.

In June, Pablo del Real, co-organizer of the event, became certified to teach Kingian Nonviolence by the Center for Nonviolence & Peace Studies at the University of Rhode Island. Auroras Voice plans to offer its first peace-building workshop this fall.

In addition to honoring International Peace Day, See Peace & Pursue it will highlight the Delray Beach Public Library’s recent acquisition of the Oxford Encyclopedia of Peace.

The event is free and open to the public. Peace be with you.
