YMCA Peace Week (November 17-24, 2018)

YMCA Peace Week is a time when we celebrate the presence of peace in our communities and reflect on the peace-building work that happens all year both inside and outside the YMCA.

The YMCA believes peace is more than the absence of violence and conflict. Peace is the ongoing work of building and rebuilding conditions of fairness, inclusion, empathy, security and respect for diversity.

YMCA Peace Week calls people to:  Build community. Act for peace.

When we act together for peace, we build stronger and healthier communities.
