By Becky Brooke, Pam Teague and Sarah Moulton with Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Quad Cities and the Youth NAACP of Davenport, Iowa

9/21 – Stand up and speak out about peace. We have joined with Pace e Bene and Kit Ford to celebrate International Peace Day. The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Quad Cities and the Youth NAACP celebrated International Peace Day on 9/21! We gathered at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Quad Cities at 4 p.m. to decorate signs promoting peace and what it means to us. Following the sign making we headed to the Sky Bridge to hold up our signs so that the cars and people going by could see us. We celebrated at Falbo’s Pizza following our peaceful protest. Together we filled the sky with peace and love!!
