Peace is built person by person, group by group and nation by nation. In commemoration of the United Nations International Day of Peace, we invite University of San Diego students, faculty and staff, as well as the San Diego community, to join us in celebrating this day of nonviolence and reconciliation.

The event will feature live music, food vendors and a march for peace. Local and campus organizations working for peace and social justice will provide information and ways to get involved. Participants in this celebration of peace will observe a moment of silence followed by a dove release.
