Pivot2Peace, September 21
Some of he founding members of Pivot2Peace will be in Collingwood on Sept. 21 promoting Peace Pledges.
They will be outside the Federal Building, next to the Loblaw parking lot, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“This year, it has been clearer than ever that what happens in one part of the planet can impact people everywhere,” said organizers. “As we struggle to defeat COVID-19, and address the ongoing global Climate Crisis, any help will be appreciated. The United Nations invites the world to unite and share thoughts on how to weather this storm, end war, and heal our planet.”
Pivot2Peace (P2P) is a Collingwood-based group with over 120 members. It is part of the newly-formed Canadian Peace Network which includes more than 60 peace organizations across Canada. P2P is also a chapter of the internationally-based organization, World Beyond War, which has members in over 175 countries.
Pivot2Peace is committed to educating people about the costs of war and to raising awareness about vastly superior non-violent alternatives as a way to resolve conflict.
Last year, on Sept. 21, it hosted a Celebration of Peace at the Collingwood Legion. Because people can not physically come together this year, they are asking people to stand together with the United Nations, on Sept. 21, make their voice heard, and sign the online World Beyond War Peace Pledge at worldbeyondwar.org/individual.
