Beacon Hill Friends Meeting
Beacon Hill Friends Meeting is an inclusive Quaker religious community in Boston that affirms the value of all people regardless of race, nationality, ethnicity, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
Please help us celebrate peacemaking and nonviolence at the local
UN International Day of Peace gathering
Date: September 21st 2019 - 2-4pm
Location: The Boston Common (near the Park Street MBTA station).
BHFM will have a table with information from 2-4pm.
The celebration will be focused on the United Nations’ theme for the 2019 – Climate Action for Peace – and the need for peace with justice for all in our community and around the world.
The program will include brief presentations by local peacemakers about their work, performances of music, dance, song, and poetry, and activities for children. It will conclude with the reading of a list of recent local victims of violence. And finally, a walk to the nearby Garden of Peace to pray for peace among stones engraved with the names of local victims of violence.
