Delaware’s Movement for a Culture of Peace and Delaware organizations and individuals across will partner for a second year to conduct a week-long series of events Sept. 17-24.

During the inaugural Peace Week Delaware in 2016, more than 2,000 people participated in more than 40 events across the state. Events included a show of children’s visionary peace art, performances and concerts, public library displays from Lewes to Claymont, interfaith meals, yoga, meditation, films, an outdoor coffeehouse and rallies and peace marches in Sussex and New Castle counties.

The purpose of Peace Week Delaware is to facilitate cooperation and collaboration among community, nonprofit and faith organizations, building the state’s capacity to achieve their collective goals for peace and justice; and to offer peace-loving people across Delaware the opportunity to join together to recognize the possibility of peace and to energize their actions.
