Boston Celebration for the UN International Day of Peace
Sunday, September 20 from 3:00 – 4:30 pm on Zoom

For the tenth year, FMC is involved in planning and organizing the local celebration of the United Nations International Day of Peace. This year’s program will be virtual; please join us on Zoom. To reserve your free ticket, go to IDPBoston2020.Eventbrite.com or you can livestream it on the Cooperative Metropolitan Ministries Facebook page.

This year’s theme is “Shaping Peace Together,” and we are planning an event focusing on the three pandemics: Racial Injustice, Violence, and COVID-19. Our own Miranda Henne and Toussaint Liberator will be among the musical performers. The Reverend Rodney Dailey (New Bethel AME Church, Lowell MA) will once again serve as emcee. The Reverend Rahsaan Hall, Director of the Racial Justice Program for the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts, will be one of the speakers. John Flynn, an American singer-songwriter and activist (founder and executive director of New Beginnings – Next Step, Inc.) known for his powerful music, will be among the other performers featured on the program. Please visit the IDP Boston website for more detailed information.

The contact is Ian Harrington at idp@fmcquaker.org
