Dear peace community,
This year more than any other time, we can see what is really important in our lives, our workplaces and our communities — our connections with each other are the most valuable thing we have. At a time when we can’t see faces or give hugs or handshakes, it is more important than ever to celebrate and appreciate each other. It is after all, the foundation of peacemaking.
Last week, I sent out a letter to our current members letting them know that our annual Peace Party, which we all love so much, is not going to be possible this year. Obviously, we will miss the thrill of being with so many of you. But we will also miss the income generated by the event — $30,000 or more that we use for programming and support throughout the year.
