Peace Week Ends on notes of optimism and determination

A sincere “thank you” to all the community-based organizations who have presented their messages of hope and compassion to their fellow Delawareans during Peace Week 2020 despite tremendous logistical obstacles. This year’s events have been notable for bringing all of Delaware together through the magic of video conferencing ; the message of peace has permeated all corners of the space that we call home. Thank you all for your attendance and your ongoing support. Our takeaway must be that we will continue to work for peace, hope and justice throughout our community throughout the year.
