David Hartsough, a Quaker and friend of our community, will speak of his experiences as a lifelong Peace Activist. Born in 1940 David was inspired to his life's work when he met Rev Martin Luther King in 1956. We are honored to have David share his work against nuclear weapons at 12:30, and then we will show a film, "Pictures from a Hiroshima Schoolyard", and finish with a discussion at 2pm hosted by David.

In 2021 David Hartsough was the recipient of the 2021 Clarence B. Jones Award for Kingian Nonviolence. Watch the celebration to Honor David here.

The film from 2012 "Pictures from a Hiroshima Schoolyard " is a project from All Souls Church Unitarian of Washington DC. The film shows the relationship over time between All Souls and the Honkawa School in Hiroshima which was devastated in WWII. It is an inspiring film that renews all of one's beliefs in children, the work of peace making, and the efficacy of a committed Unitarian Church.

The art show "Origami for Peace" is a workshop of Childrens Multicultural Museum, curated by UU Art Committee member Andrei Glase. View the show online here.

WHAT DOES PEACE MEAN TO YOU?

Now Showing

Look closely at the colorful papers hanging in the Kings' Galleries!!

If you believe or want to believe that 1000 origami doves will grant the makers their wish "for no more nuclear bombs" then you want to see also what peace means to the children who created the origami hanging there!


You can read the thoughts of children about "What Peace Means to Them" by scrolling down this page!


Peacedoves workshops created by Andrei Glase, Curator of Childrens Multicultural Museum and member of UU Art Committee.


Why Origami and the Peace Movement? The activity is woven into the history of the terrible nuclear destruction of Hiroshima during WWII. One girl, Sadako Sasaki, was 2 years old then, and by 7th grade was hospitalized with the "A Bomb disease". Before she died she inspired the Children's Peace Movement, with submissions of folded cranes arriving from 7 countries to the Hiroshima Peace Park which is close to the spot where the bomb was dropped. The origami still arrives today.


The community can contribute to the exhibit by sending their origami and peace thoughts to
