Celebrate International Day of Peace during PeaceQuest Greater Lansing 2018!

You, your family, friends, and/or organization may take part in our fourth annual PeaceQuest Greater Lansing 2018 in many ways.  

Get ready for a MONTH of peace related events - this September (International Day of Peace is always on September 21.) 

Join GL-UNA and other planning organizations (including Niagara Foundation, Peace Education Center, Shalom Center for Justice and Peace and others) as we get our community actively involved, thinking deeply, and having fun as we focus on our need to move our world - locally and globally - closer to peace.  

Events being planned to date are a bike ride for peace, a film fest, an art contest for youth, performances, peace sermons, and more.   We welcome you/your organization to get onboard to host an event, display your peace related work, become a supporting “sponsor,”  etc.  Go to www.peacequestgreaterlansing.org for information - and return often as our calendar builds!

 

Invitation to the UNA-USA Leadership Summit! It’s not too late to register!

*Tickets are limited*

Register now to save your spot! The deadline to register is May 31!

It matters now more than ever that we make our voices heard to protect the vital work of the United Nations. With proposed bills in Congress aimed at either dramatically reducing US funding for the UN or withdrawing our country entirely from the global body, the UNA-USA community must come together and fight for what we know is right: Standing with refugees; demanding equality for women; protecting LGBT rights; combatting climate change; working for peace; and more.
