Peacebuilder (Pb) Events: Q & A

What is a Pb Walk & Village?

Aa family-friendly, educational event designed to promote peace literacy (i.e. the art of living peaceably) through the stories of peace heroes and peacebuilders.


Peacebuilding is a Team Sport

Teams are formed by individuals who select a peace hero to be honored.  These individuals often represent an organization they belong to such as service club, faith community, business, school or civic organization. Your team is welcome to set a fundraising goal (example $1,200) and help support peacebuilding throughout the Miami Valley.


What does it cost to participate?

Free to the public with a suggested donation of $20 (or more) to receive a signature event shirt.


How are the funds handled?

 The 21CPLF will oversee distribution of the funds and allocate them for local peace literacy initatives and peacebuilding organizations.


What is peace literacy?

Peace literacy is the art of living peaceably.  It is essential to creating a more secure, just and prosperous world for all.

Peace hero ideals

  • recognize interconnections;
  • promote justice;
  • reject vengeance;
  • foster reconciliation.


What word can change your world today?

Words lead to thoughts ... that lead to action ...that lead to CHANGE! 

  • One letter can change the "word" to "world."
  • One action can change our individual world, rippling into the outer world.
