Join us as the Interfaith Resource Center of Peace and Justice joins with the American Friends Service Committee to present the “Waging Peace Project.” AFSC is celebrating 100 years of working to bring about a more just and peaceful world and to commemorate their history and this centennial, they have created an exhibit of twelve banners that tell the stories of efforts to fight against injustice. The exhibit addresses the issues of Building Peace, Ending Discrimination, Improving Prisons, Creating Just Economies, and Securing Immigrant Rights.
