“GIVE PEACE A SONG!” – COMMUNITY EVENT BRIDGING MUSIC, ART & SOCIAL JUSTICE ISSUES

On December 1, 2019, the Sunday following Thanksgiving, the Peace & Justice Center will be holding its annual party and fund-raiser, “Give Peace a Song!”which honors local activists who stand up against war and injustice through spoken word, art, and music.  On the program are Paul Kamm and Eleanor MacDonald, poet Chris Olander, singer songwriter Nory Fussel, The 20-person strong New Peace Choir, and more.  Surprises!  Free food and beverages! $10.00 suggested donation at the door (no one turned away).  The Peace and Justice Center of Nevada County was founded by the late U. Utah Phillips, Russ and Mary Jorgensen and other activists in late 2001 following the World Trade Center disaster and the US invasion of Afghanistan.  The Peace & Justice Center envisions a world of justice, peace, equality and freedom. This vision includes local community where differences are respected, conflicts are addressed peacefully, supportive structures are developed and where people are empowered and live in harmony, nurtured by diverse traditions that foster compassion and reconciliation.  As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Peace Center is not affiliated with any political party or religion and is dedicated to principles of non-violence in all its activities and programs.  The Peace Center has been going strong all these years organizing rallies, peace marches, street demonstrations, programs and providing support to other like organizations.  As one of its primary programs, the Peace Center brings “peace recruiters” to our local high schools and engages students in discussion about their career plans following high school.  The Peace Center also shows political and controversial films on the Fourth Friday of each month and hosts discussions at the Madelyn Helling Library.   

As stated by the great Martin Luther King, Jr., “It is not enough to say ‘We must not wage war.’ It is necessary to love peace and sacrifice for it. We must concentrate not merely on the negative expulsion of war, but the positive affirmation of peace.”  And that’s just what we will do together on December 1, 2019!
