Celebrating International Peace Day in Morro Bay 2021
Yes We Can Peacebuilders is dedicated to the education of individuals and communities on the path to nonviolence so as to inspire and engage people to make nonviolent living a part of their everyday lives.
We envision a culture of peace in a community that fosters respect for all individuals, collaborating to eliminate economic discrimination, poverty, homelessness, racial and sexual discrimination, stereotyping, harassment, bullying, gangs, killing, war, and environmental degradation.
HOW WE HELP
It Starts With the Will to Make a Difference
PEACE WEEK ACTIONS YEARLY
Every year we join with national and international groups to celebrate International Peace Day. The above photo is from our September 21, 2019 Peace Picnic in the Park event. Covid 19 kept us indoors for 2020 but we produced eight videos shown online covering a variety of nonviolence themes. We invite you to view them on our SATYA page in the October issue on the last page. For 2021 we returned with masks on to celebrate once again in City Park at Morro Bay, CA. We hope you will join us from wherever you live on September 21, 2022!
NON VIOLENT CITIES PROJECT
The Nonviolent Cities Project is a grassroots movement and organizing strategy for activists to work locally for the transformation of their community into a peaceful nonviolent city, as Martin Luther King, Jr. envisioned it. Morro Bay, California joined the Nonviolent Cities Project on September 11, 2018 with a proclamation from the Mayor and City Council.
Yes We Can Peacebuilders supports social justice and humanitarian organizations in nonviolence actions.
We offer young people training on the 34 Basic Human Rights established by the United Nations through Youth for Human Rights.
Go to the Human Rights Education page for more information.
Workshops and Talk Around the Table discussion groups are once again offered on the Central Coast of California.
