International Day of Peace

On International Day of Peace AFSC joined youth at East Los Angeles' Lincoln High School. All-day activities commemorated those lives and families affected by violence in local communities. Students passed out handouts for other students to pledge to be nonviolent and over 200 students signed the pledge. Students also sold peace cupcakes to raise money and awareness.

Youth Art Exhibit: "My Voice"

Student art piece: "We Can't Bomb the World Into Peace"
On September 8, over 20 high school students from CALS Early College High School in Downtown Los Angeles hosted their art exhibit and raised awareness of the cost of war before the 9/11 weekend.  Over 500 visitors viewed the exhibit in one night, Thursday, Sept. 8, during Downtown ArtWalk night.

Student used the evening as a special occasion to raise money for much needed art supplies for next year’s Peace Exhibit at AFSC’s Friends Gallery.  $60 was raised, and the students were proud of it!  The exhibit will have an extended opening through November.
