How we do it?
We tap into our community organizations.

Peace Week Delaware brings together community organizations and people for an annual week of free nonpartisan events to promote harmony, equity and justice in our community. Each organization promotes peace in the way that best fits its mission.

Meet Some of Our Event Organizers

 

By the Numbers: Impacting Our Community

Events

In 2020, all 60 events were virtual due to the pandemic. We offered 110 events in 2019 and 35 in our inaugural year, 2016. This year, we are planning a mix of virtual and in-person events.

Counties

We have steadily grown to cover the State. One-third of all events last year originated in Sussex county. Virtual programming is increasing accessibility and diversity.

Themes

Our event organizers plan events around themes such as: well-being, racial inequity, trauma care, mental health and inclusion,  providing valuable, current information to Delawareans.

Years

In our sixth year of programming, we are leading the way in repairing our brokenness from a tough year and helping to restore the health of our community.

Peace Week 2021

October 2nd-10th

If your organization cares about peace, consider hosting either a virtual or in-person event. Deadline for submission is August 1st, 2021.

Despite the pandemic, Peace Week Delaware gathered together 60+ organizations to host events in 2020. Let’s double that number in 2021!

"Activated Our Commitment to Peace"

“Peace Week Delaware helped us to activate our commitment to peace. Over the past four years we have been able to create events  that have helped us to reach out and to raise awareness about some critical peace-related issues: learning about our Muslim neighbors; the challenges of being a refugee; local models of non-violence; and, recognizing racism in ourselves.”

-Peggy Smith, Resurrection Catholic Church

"Helped me forge new connections with my community"

“Working with Mt. Calvary AME Church of Concord, the recipient of the 2020 Peace Pole, helped me  forge new connections within my community.  Not only have I become aware of their work for peace and justice here in western Sussex County, but I got to paint peace rocks with the youth!  These small reminders of peace make me smile every time I see one.”

-Beth Kopicki, Sussex County Peace  Week
