Celebrate the International Day of Peace

Celebrate the International Day of Peace

Thursday, September 21, 2017 - 5:30pm

The Des Moines Faith Committee for Peace invites the public to celebrate the International Day of Peace on Thursday, September 21, at 6:30 PM, at the Peace Garden in Cowles Commons, 221 Walnut Street, in Des Moines. “On the Threshold of a New Day” is the theme of the celebration, a phrase at the heart of a speech given by Coretta Scott King at a peace rally just months after Dr. King’s murder. 

Continuing the Faith Committee’s commitment to observing the last year of Dr. Kings’ life—so given to peacemaking—the service will include a reenactment of the speech given by Mrs. King in NYC in 1968.  AFSC and MFSA are two co-sponsors of this event.
