This year’s theme is “A Lifetime of Peacemaking: Honoring Those Who Guided Us Here.” We hope you will join us in honoring people who have spent their lives in service of peace, social justice, equity, and equality. All of the recipients have worked for peace and have built bridges between and among communities: reaching across perceived divides of neighborhood, ethnicity, gender, race, and class.
To help defray the costs of the event, the suggested donation is $10 for adults and $5 for children. To RSVP send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or make checks payable to “Cambridge Peace Commission” and mail to: Cambridge Peace Commission, 51 Inman St., Cambridge, MA 02139.
Since 1995, the Cambridge Peace Commission has honored individuals and groups in Cambridge who have worked for peace and justice. Out of more than 25 nominations received this year, the Peace Commission selected five individuals and one group representing the breadth and depth of efforts for peace and justice in our city – from the local to the global – in families, schools, congregations, and neighborhoods.
