A great celebration of International Day of Peace was held on Monday in Albuquerque at the Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice. The event was co-sponsored by The P & J Center, the United Nations Association USA Albuquerque Chapter, The University of New Mexico Peace and Justice Studies Program and Campaign Nonviolence. There was a very interesting, stimulating Panel on Nonviolence and Struggle for Justice. Those on the panel were: Albino Garcia (La Placita Institute, Dr Jamal Martin from the UNM Peace & Justice Studies Program, Thom Alena who is a specialist in restorative justice. This was followed by a delicious frito pie dinner. New Mexico Poets, headed by Mary Oishi, read their Peace Poem in partnership with the Austin-based “Poems for Peace” project, joining poets nationwide in the goal to read a million poems for peace. The evening culminated with a candlelight vigil for peace. It was a powerful event attended by a couple hundred people throughout the evening.
