Campaign Nonviolence organizers in Wilmington, DE gathered once again for the third year in a row for their March for a Culture of Peace!  This year they combined their march with the group 302 Guns Down for this day of  peace. Check out the incredible video from their march below!

Organizer June Eisley reported that the Muslim community has also been involved in their peace activities. Prof. Muqtedar Khan recently wrote  a reflection on Patheos about promoting peace after his time with Peace Week Delaware. Read his article here.

Organizers also held numerous other events throughout Wilmington and the surrounding area, including a talk on nonviolence by Pace e Bene’s John Dear (see video below) and a March for Peace in Rehoboth Beach.
