Peace Week 2019 will take place on November 17-23.
Keep an eye out for the unveiling of our PEACE Mural in the South End, created by our very own Newcomer Youth. Time and date to be announced.
YMCA Peace Week is a time when we celebrate the presence of peace in our communities, and reflect on the peace-building work that happens all year both inside and outside the YMCA. The YMCA believes peace is more than the absence of violence and conflict. Peace is the ongoing work of building and rebuilding conditions of fairness, inclusion, empathy, security, and respect for diversity. When Canadians embody the values of PEACE through our daily actions, we can build a better Canada. YMCA Peace Week calls people to “Build Community. Act for Peace.” When we act for peace, together we build stronger and healthier communities.
