Seeking Community Input on a Holistic Plan for Peace
On Sunday, the Movement for a Culture of Peace (MCP) moves forward with its plans to convene in the midst of the extreme violence and trauma that our Delaware community has seen this week. With collective community input, we will develop a more holistic Action Plan for Peace that includes our work against the Death Penalty. Sunday’s action forum invites a present, hurting community, complete with raw wounds and complex emotional experiences in a holistic and inclusive plan. We urge you to come prepared to think radically about how we address the extraordinary amount of trauma as a result of violence and the intersectionality of our holistic movement toward a true culture of peace in Delaware.
Sunday, April 30 – 3:00 to 5:00 – Grace Church – 900 Washington St. 19801
Corner of 9th and West St. – Ample free parking
MCP will reframe Sunday’s forum to provide an opportunity for members of the Delaware community to engage with this trauma and work toward a better future. The path to peace must include action against the systematic injustice of capital punishment. Yet the causes of violence intersect across the whole community and our action plan needs to consider everything that peaceful, healthy, thriving communities need. Come be a part of this vital forum about rejecting all forms of violence—including the violence of silence—and creating a culture of peace in Delaware.
What is a Culture of Peace?
A coordinated approach to building alternatives to the prevailing culture of violence based on education, economic opportunity, anti-racism, equal justice, respect for human rights, equality between women and men, respect for LGBTQ rights, democratic participation, the free flow of information, and disarmament of our nations and neighborhoods.
