7th Annual Peace Feast

Saturday, June 1, 2019, Noon – 2 pm

Square Dance Pavilion, Pioneer Park

Celebrating Peacemakers in our Community!

Come Help us Celebrate!

APC Peace Feast, June 2, 2018

Free famous barbeque! Please bring a dish to share and eating utensils if possible. This will be an opportunity to relax in the summer sun and share ideas and interests. We encourage those with a passion for peace to get involved at the personal level to make a difference in our own community. We’ll be featuring short presentations of work toward peace, justice, and sustainability being done in our community. The Square Dance Pavilion is between the Dance Hall and the the Pioneer Air Museum.

 

The Alaska Peace Center works for peace, justice and sustainability – individually, in our community and globally – with a commitment to nonviolent conflict resolution. For more information, contact info@alaskapeace.org.

Peace Center Message on Borough Bus System

Since early March Bus #75 has been moving around the Fairbanks area with a message from the World Beyond War Billboard Project prominently displayed. It’s been seen by several people so we know it’s out there. Feel free to leave comments on this post to share your feedback, any thoughts you have about the message and any conversations that arise.

We’re so grateful to have the use of this bus and to have community participation. And there is still opportunity to sponsor additional months. The cost to APC per month is $120. Donations can be made via PayPal on the right-hand panel of this website, or via check to:

Borough Bus #75 with APC-sponsored message from World Beyond War Billboard Project

The Alaska Peace Center

If this is a medium that APC supporters feel good about, there is also the opportunity to eventually run other messages on Borough buses. See https://worldbeyondwar.org/billboardsproject/ to see other message designs available.

Doctrine of Discovery

The Doctrine of Discovery

Potluck, Movie and Discussion

Friday, March 29 at the University Community Presbyterian Church

Potluck at 6:00, Movie starts at 7:00

Papal Bulls of the 15th and 16th Centuries gave “Christian” nations the right to discover and dominate lands occupied by non-Christian peoples. Through an 1823 Supreme Court decision by Justice John Marshall these bulls still form the foundation of laws concerning indigenous peoples in the United States today. This movie explains how this happened and its implications today. Sponsored by the Alaska Peace Center, the University Community Presbyterian Church, and Native Movement. See the flyer.
