Peace Week

A nationwide celebration of peace

We know we can’t change the world alone, but we know together we can do more. That’s the power of a global community.

YMCA Peace Week – November 14 – 21, 2020

As we navigate through 2020 and the COVID-19 crisis, YMCA Peace Week takes on new meaning, illustrating how the ongoing work of building peace needs to continue now more than ever. COVID-19 and the urgent calls for action for diversity, social inclusion, and equity are challenging us to reconsider where we’ve been and where we want to go.

When people act for peace, they build community by promoting a sense of belonging, fostering empathy, and embracing diversity.  We all have opportunities each day to choose to act for peace. They may be small actions, but they make a big difference and create a ripple effect through our communities. Please join us in celebrating peace this week, and throughout the year, by committing an unexpected kind act each day. It’s easy!

“Peace begins with a smile”.

-Mother Teresa
