You are warmly invited to the official launch of Peace Hub, a new centre opened by Central England Quakers.
What is Peace Hub?
Quakers believe that a just and peaceful world is possible if we work together to make change in our own lives and to build local, national and international structures that support peace & justice.
Peace Hub is a centre for everyone who is in sympathy with this call to action: Quakers, the wider peace movement and the general public alike. Everyone is welcome to pop into our Hub on Bull Street, Birmingham, to take action for peace & justice from resisting the arms trade to supporting Fairtrade.
Peacemakers (the West Midlands Quaker Peace Education Project) are based on the first floor. They work in partnerships with local schools to help build more peaceful communities by delivering training to adults and children in skills such as peer mediation and conflict resolution.
On 26th February we would love for you to join us to celebrate our official launch.
Between 11:00 and 18:00 we will be open for the public to join us in celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight, with an action for people to take to encourage local supermarkets to stock Fairtrade goods. Peacemakers will be inviting local schools to attend and take part in a competition to promote Fairtrade. You are welcome to drop-in at any time during the day.
From 18:30 we invite you to join us for a reception with light refreshments, hosted by our sister organisation the Priory Rooms (next door at 40 Bull St).
An invitation is attached.
There will be a chance to discuss why we have felt called to promote peace and justice in Birmingham through the Hub, and how we hope to work together with the community, as well as an introduction to our next peace & justice theme: conscientious objection.
We look forward to you joining us in celebration of this new peace-making project in the heart of Birmingham.
For the evening event, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or Peace Hub, 41 Bull St, Birmingham, B4 6AF.
