Sr. Paulette Schroeder and Josie Setzler with Project Peace in Tiffin, OH entered their Project Peace float and booth into a local parade on Sept. 20-21!

Josie says they took the themes to the Heritage Days Festival and Parade visited by thousands of people. Their float theme was “Plant Hope, Weed Out Fear.” Their booth themes were 1) “Connect the Dots between War, Poverty, and Climate Crisis” and 2) “Living Under Drones,” telling the story of the Stanford/NYU report by the same name.
