September 21st is the International Day of Peace.
To the Mountain Peacemakers the International Day of Peace is a stepping stone into thoughtful decisions to invite peaceful solutions into our everyday experience.
The Mountain Peacemakers are a collective of Watauga, Ashe, and Avery county citizens, working to build a network of action toward the goals of the United Nations sanctioned, globally celebrated occasion, The International Day of Peace.
The goal, defined by the United Nations, is “a day of global ceasefire and non-violence, an invitation to all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities for the duration of the day.”
Please join us in this year’s International Day of Peace celebration.
