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:
