Please join us on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10th as we celebrate our National and Local Peacemaker Award Recipients!
A celebration of the handmade and the unique, the practical and the beautiful, the Peace Sale takes tradition and gives it a few modern touches. Buy handmade treasures; bid on a quilt during the live auction; browse Ten Thousand Villages; drink Fair Trade coffee; feast on freshly prepared food, take home a shoo-fly pie – and know that you’re supporting peace and justice at home and abroad.
The Mennonite Sale for World Peace is a sale and auction in the tradition of Mennonite Relief Sales held annually across the United States and Canada.
This is a ‘lunch and learn’ talk by a visiting activist from India. Jayaram Venkatesan heads a citizens movement in the state of Tamil Nadu, India, which aims to create a just and equitable society.

The Houston Youth Voters Conference is a summit dedicated to the empowerment of Houston
youth as it concerns four pillars of civic engagement: voter registration, voter turnout, non-
partisan dialogue, and volunteering.
This event will celebrate our right and privilege as youth to participate in our democracy and
effect change in our communities. It will feature speakers, policy discussions, and opportunities
to meet other-like minded youth. We will get registered/pledged to vote together, and come up
with actionable ways to get civically engaged as a united Houston youth front!

Paris to Pittsburgh brings to life the impassioned efforts of individuals who are battling the most severe threats of climate change in their own backyards. Set against the national debate over the United States’ energy future – and the Trump administration’s decision to exit the Paris Climate Agreement – the film captures what’s at stake for communities around the country – and the inspiring ways Americans are responding. The film is directed by Sidney Beaumont and Mike Bonfiglio, produced by Bloomberg Philanthropies and RadicalMedia and distributed by National Geographic Documentary Films.
