‘Give Peace A Song’ event set for Sept. 21

Campaign Nonviolence has invited all people of faith, conscience and goodwill to take to the streets or hold an event during the period of Sept. 21-27 in the spirit of nonviolence to speak out publicly for an end to war, poverty and environmental destruction — and to begin to build a new culture of peace and nonviolence.

The Peace & Justice Center of Nevada County is joining Campaign Nonviolence and also commemorating the International Day of Peace on Sunday, Sept. 21, according to a news release.

“With all the violence in the world today from Gaza to Iraq, to the Ukraine, and in communities across the U.S. like Ferguson, Missouri, more than ever before we must endeavor to bring the message of nonviolent action to build a culture of peace for all,” the release states.

“Sept. 21 also marks the global day of action against climate change with a mass rally in New York City organized by 350.org. With the deplorable assault on our environment, on our water, our air and our food, the Peace & Justice Center will strive to bring the message of taking action to thwart these ills, and to raise hope through community singing — songs of healing the Earth for ourselves and for the future generations.”

The Peace Center’s event is “Give Peace a Song” and takes place 2-4 p.m. Sept. 21 at the Nevada City Veterans Hall, 415 N. Pine St.

The Nevada County community is invited to this free event where peach and apple cobbler will be served. There will be short talks by Nory Fussell, Sharon Delgado, Lorraine Reich, and others, and music will be provided by local musicians.
