Here's a sampling of the peacebuilding projects we've been involved with recently.
the hub AS A mobile "SPACE FOR PEACE"
(Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum, McMinnville, OR) In collaboration with the Rotarian Action Group for Peace, The Hub Peacebuilder traveled 9,000 miles in 2017 with stops for live music and interviews with local Rotary Clubs. We explored the question: "What does peacebuilding look like for you?". The Hub was featured in the Friendship Hall at the Rotary International Convention (with 43,000 Rotarian's in attendance).
