Kickoff Meeting Enthusiasm!

Thanks to the many organizational representatives that attended our Kickoff Meeting on March 1st. Our 2017 culture of peace initiative — Transformation Dayton — was enthusiastically received and many collaborations began. This September’s events and actions by the Peace Dayton Collaborative Group will be mapped to the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals for Year 2030. A full-color, multipage “Report to the Community” along with a video and media campaign will be developed though the summer and culminating in November. With photos and stories, the Report will highlight each participating organization and their peace-building actions to support a Regional culture of peace. This initiative will feature the entire Miami Valley Region and include multiple towns and communities (i.e. Transformation Urbana and Transformation Springfield, etc.).

To date, over 20 organizations are already engaged in planning for September’s Peace Month. Please send your tentative plans by email: arment@fredarment.com

ANNOUNCING THE 2017 THEME FOR INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE!

“Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All”

The United Nations theme for Peace Day is a much needed local/global call to community action.
It not only reflects the necessity for a humanitarian approach to our global migrant and refugee crisis,
it speaks beyond division and polarization to the power of unity in community peace building.

NOW MORE THAN EVER

Our Strategy for 2017 and beyond to 2030 was resoundingly seconded by the twenty organizations at the meeting. With imminent budget cuts, the responsibility for our community’s safety, prosperity and quality of life rests even more with civil society in collaboration with government, business, the arts, environment, schools, etc. Definitely time to kick in!
