About Arkansas Peace Week

Arkansas Peace Week 2016: Make Peace our “Natural” State!

September 18-25, 2016

Arkansas Peace Week is conducted by a coalition of local, national and international organizations, faith groups and individuals with a mission to promote peace and instill justice, end war, alleviate poverty, protect planet earth and eliminate the scourge of violence in our communities.

During Arkansas Peace Week, we plan activities to educate and promote peace and justice and raise awareness of organizations working to build a lasting peace in Arkansas. The lessons learned and relationships formed during Arkansas Peace Week create a foundation for continuing a sustainable peace throughout the year.

Arkansas Peace Week is planned in observance of the United Nation’s International Day of Peace on September 21, and in coordination with the nationwide Campaign Non-Violence Week of Actions.
