Arkansas Peace Week

Posted by Erin Bechtol
10.23.17

Arkansas Peace Week is a program of events planned in observance of the United Nation’s International Day of Peace on September 21.

Arkansas Peace Week celebrates Peacemaking as a means to instill justice, build stronger communities, alleviate poverty, promote ecological stewardship, end war, eliminate the scourge of violence in our society, while seeking respect, inclusion and fair treatment of all people.

During Arkansas Peace Week, we plan activities to educate and promote peacemaking in our society and raise awareness of organizations working to build a lasting peace in Arkansas. The lessons learned and relationships formed during Arkansas Peace Week create a foundation for continuing a sustainable peace in our society throughout the year.

Arkansas Peace Week is conducted by a coalition of local, national and international organizations, faith groups, and individuals with a mission to promote peacemaking and justice. Numerous events are planned throughout our state, featuring education, service, dialogue and outreach activities promoting our mission.

Arkansas Peace Week is planned in coordination with the nationwide Campaign Non-Violence Week of Actions.
