Our local peacemaker awardees will be Bren Hardt, Ashton Woods, and Jackie Young. Each of them will get to tell us about the important work they do. A special presentation will also be given to Casa Juan Diego.

Roy Zimmerman Concert – Potluck- Fundraiser for Peace Camp Houston

April 1, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Bering Memorial United Methodist Church, 1440 Harold St.
Houston, TX 77006 United States

What can one person do about climate change, torture, racism, xenophobia, gun violence, fracking, Congressional ineptitude, ignorance, war and greed? Write funny songs, says Roy Zimmerman, master satirist, songwriter, and performer.

HPJC is bringing Roy Zimmerman back to Houston in a benefit to raise funds for Peace Camp Houston. In 14 albums over 20 years, Roy has brought the sting of satire and parody to the struggle for peace and social justice.

He makes fun of right wing politicians, hypocrites, war profiteers, large multinational corporations, religious bigots, and hate-mongers, while entertaining you with stories and music.

Earth Day Barter Fair

April 22, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Live Oak Friends Meeting House, 1318 W. 26th
Houston, TX 77008 United States

A Barter Fair provides an opportunity to trade objects and services without using common currency. The Quaker testimonies of Simplicity, Community and Stewardship encourage Friends to find creative ways to care for the earth and each other, and we want to extend this opportunity to others in the community. Creating a space to practice thinking together in a new way about how we place value on objects and services within our community seems like a worthwhile way to observe the 48th anniversary of Earth Day.

To get involved, just come! Bring a table, shelf, rug or blanket to display your goods or a sign that describes your service(s). CHILDREN ARE WELCOME! Children are often the best models of how this can work. They have the ability to add value to an item by describing potential uses, and the creativity to negotiate three-way trades.
