09.19.17

The Western New York Coalition of Peace, Justice, and Nonviolence Advocates hosted the 4th annual Peace-Justice-Nonviolence Festival & Walk (PJNV) 9/16 from 11 AM to 4 PM. Children are a main theme for the activities. A play based on PJNV was developed by youth in the morning including the “LifeSavers” from STVC led by “The Anne Frank Project” from Buffalo State College’s theater and art department. The children presented the developed 5 minute play as part of the opening welcome and then led the Walk.
