Peace Ball

This event sold out quickly last time, so get your tickets early!

“Four years ago hundreds of peace loving activists gathered at the 2008 Inaugural Peace Ball here in Washington, DC to celebrate the election of the first African American President of the United States and to wave the banner of peace during that historic moment. The times are different today, but the commitment to ensure that peace and justice remain on our national agenda has not wavered.

Won’t you join us for this historic night on January 20, 2013 along with hundreds of other activists and agitators to reclaim hope, to celebrate our accomplishments and to dance the furious dance of defiance!”

Cosponsors: Tyler Clementi Foundation, Center for Social Justice and GLBT Communities at Rutgers University, Canterbury House The Episcopal Campus Ministry, and LLEGO, The LGBTQQIA People of Color Union at Rutgers New Brunswick.

Here is some of Tyler’s Clementi’s story:

“Tyler Clementi was a smart, talented and creative young man. He had a kind heart and bright spirit, and was deeply loved by his family and friends. . . Tyler was gay, and had just begun sharing this part of himself with the people he was close to during the summer after his high school graduation. This was a difficult time for him, but he was brave and honest about who he was. After graduating high school, Tyler attended Rutgers University where he was excited to learn, grow and have the freedom to live openly as a gay man.

At college Tyler became a victim of cyber-bullying. His privacy was invaded when his college roommate set up a webcam to spy on him. The roommate viewed him in an intimate act, and invited others to view this online. Tyler discovered what his abuser had done and that he was planning a second attempt. Viewing his roommate’s Twitter feed, Tyler learned he had widely become a topic of ridicule in his new social environment. He ended his life several days later by jumping off the George Washington Bridge. Tyler was eighteen years old.”

Mother’s Day Concert Against Gun Violence: A Benefit for the Children’s Defense Fund

With performances by KJ Denhert, Alix Dobkin, Emma’s Revolution, John Flynn, Terre Roche and Claudia Goddard, and others.

Suggested donation $18, more if you choose, less if you can’t, no one is turned away!

From the Children’s Defense Fund: “For more than 20 years, CDF has produced a gun report 'Protect Children, Not Guns’ which documents the epidemic of gun violence in America. A child or teen dies or is injured from guns every 30 minutes. Gun violence saturates our children’s lives. More children and teens die from guns every three days than died in the Newtown massacre. The number of children under 5 killed by guns in 2010 was more than the number of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty that same year. Between 1979 and 2010, 119,079 children and teens died from guns. This is more deaths in 32 years than U.S. soldiers killed in action in the Vietnam, Korean, Afghanistan and Iraq wars combined. Download our new fact sheet 'The Truth About Guns’, distribute the most up-to-date key facts on child and teen gun deaths and injuries and take action.”

Celebrate with Diane Wilson who will speak about her active nonviolent action fasting for 57 days on water and then scaling the White House fence on the June 26th, 2013, International Day for Victims of Torture. Her jury trial starts September 5th. Come support this 'Unreasonable Woman’, Texas shrimper, co-founder of CodePink, and member of Veterans for Peace.

Hear Andrés Thomas Conteris, who has fasted on water-only since July 8, 2013, the day that 30,000 prisoners in California began their hunger strike for 5 Core Demands. On Friday, September 6, at 12 noon, he will be fed with nasogastric tubes in front of the White House to show how U.S. policy orders the torture of Gitmo prisoners who are force-fed twice daily. On August 19, a judge in San Francisco issued an order clearing the way to force-feed prisoners on hunger strike in California.”
