On September 26th, as part of the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions, we started with a song filled peace walk to the Sauk County Courthouse. Following the walk we held a public program outside on the courthouse steps: Peace Grows! Nurturing a Culture of Peace! We had speakers on Climate Crisis, Peace Not War, Poverty and Jesus the Peacemaker. The Mayor of Baraboo spoke on Nonviolent Advocacy as a Catalyst for Change.

We had litany of peace theater presentation. Musicians performed and lead the group in peace minded song.
