Tiffin,OH Celebrates Peace!

On Sept. 17, Tiffin hosted its annual Heritage Parade so Project Peace again through the help of Tiffin University students created a beautiful float, and 5 sixth graders rode on the wagon and marched in the parade.

On Sept. 18, I went to Bellville, OH and gave a talk about the Boycott/divestment/sanctions efforts to help bring justice to Palestine.

Then on Sept. 21, a Tiffin University intern serving for Project Peace organized a Tiffin University Peace Fair.  There were 7 organizations of the university displaying their efforts to help all the students at TU become better aware of services offered and to step forward with their voices in the women’s issues, in the gender issues, in the artistic efforts, in Project Peace’s efforts. Our attendance was not real large at all, but it was a first and the young man who set it up was thrilled to do this project as the culmination of his internship with Project Peace this summer.  He invited all the clubs of the University to attend…below are a couple pictures.

All in all, it was a good week.

A group is also being organized to participate in the Nonviolent Cities Campaign.  We’re hoping now that we can really get started.
