Event Details

The last year has seen an alarming rise in armed conflict, social bigotry, and political authoritarianism. At the same time, unprecedented numbers of people around the globe have rallied to resist the politics of hate. Many of us have felt fear and motivation, isolation and empowerment, disillusion and hope. PeaceWorks 2017 asks how we might harness these passionate feelings into effective social movements.

The event will be filled with workshops, panel discussions, presentations, and networking opportunities. People and organizations from Washington and beyond will come together with a goal of developing concrete strategies for justice, peace, and progressive social change.
