Posted by Erin Bechtol

During the 2017 Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions, International Cities of Peace organized a series of events featuring peace poles, multicultural meals, peace murals, youth events, and more.

International Cities of Peace™ is a nonprofit, tax-exempt association dedicated to connecting, promoting, and encouraging the global cities of peace movement. An Advisory Council of leaders from global Cities of Peace organizations is working to create an all-inclusive, non-polarizing network of world citizens working on the ground to bring peace to their communities.

Peace, in the view of this organization, is not just a hope. It’s a right.

Check out the video featuring photos of Cities of Peace around the world below.
