Welcome to the home of the PEACE DAYton Collaborative Group, an initiative of over 100 organizations that are contributing to a culture of peace in Dayton and the Miami Valley.

A great opportunity for people and groups in the Region to connect with family, friends, neighbors and colleagues. Ask how!

Our calendar for September, 2018 is getting very full with what has become a month-long reflection, education, and celebration around the International Day of Peace.

Last year the official United Nations Peace Day theme was “Together: Respect, Safety, and Dignity for All”. This year’s announcement of the 2018 theme for International Day of Peace came recently at United Nations headquarters. Secretary-General Gutierrez announced the new theme: “The Right to Peace:  the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at 70”. The Declaration was spearheaded by former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and resolved by acclamation by the new United Nations General Assembly in 1948. This year we have a chance to reaffirm!
