HIGHLIGHTS OF THE 2017 HUB PEACEBUILDER TOUR:  "Peace Wheels on the Ground!"

In collaboration with the Rotarian Action Group for Peace (RAGFP), The Hub traveled from Dayton, OH to the West Coast (San Diego to Portland) and on to the Rotary World Peace Conference 2017 in Ann Arbor, MI.  It will arrive in Atlanta, GA on June 9th for the Rotary International Convention where it will be on exhibit in the Friendship Hall

Through dozens of video interviews, Rotarian Troubadour, Jerry Leggett explored the question, "What does peacebuilding look like for you?"

The Hub Peacebuilder is a mobile "space for peace" that has been 'Rotarized' with "The Four Way Test" and a colorful "Peace Map" featuring Rotary's worldwide peacebuilding network. It serves as a venue for video interviews, inspiring live music and engaging conversations around peacebuilding. 

PEACE WHEELS ON THE GROUND
