Over 20 local peace and justice groups displayed their information and were available to talk with people who attended the festival. We displayed the Proclamations from 6 local towns and cities proclaiming a week of nonviolence. Two workshops and two singing groups were provided.
Workshops included: Triangle SURJ (Stand Up For Racial Justice) “Ways White Folks Can Show Up for Racial Justice” and Patrick O’Neill “Resisting the Madness of Endless War”
Singing Groups included the Raging Grannies and Fruit of Labor (Black Workers for Justice)
After the festival, we concluded with a Walk for Values as we brought the message of nonviolence to our community. The purpose of the walk was to raise awareness and encourage everyone to abide by the Human Values of Truth, Love, Right Conduct, Peace and Nonviolence in their daily living. The Walk took place North Carolina State University.
