Please join us for the Peace Action Fund of New York State’s annual William Sloane Coffin, Jr. Peacemaker Award Gala, this year celebrating Women Defending Diplomacy.
Our honoree is Judy Lerner, Chair of Peace Action International at the UN, and the keynote will be delivered by Cora Weiss, the UN Representative of the International Peace Bureau.
The gala dinner will be held Saturday, October 8th at 6:30PM at All Souls Church in NYC (1157 Lexington Avenue; Lexington between 79th and 80th). And, after dinner, join us for a night of music and dancing to celebrate the birthday of the late Carol Husten, a life-long peace activist.
Be an Honorary Gala Host
We would be so honored to have you step up as a host of our Women Defending Diplomacy awards event. This is our single most important fundraising event that fuels the important work of Peace Action New York State.
From our state office in downtown Manhattan at 64 Fulton Street, we support and coordinate activism of 12 community and 12 campus chapters (soon to be 15!), connecting them to the largest grassroots peace organization in the United States – national Peace Action. We provide materials, training, and support that allow communities and students to speak up about nuclear weapons, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, weaponized drones, military spending, the Islamic State, the refugee crisis, and racism and Islamophobia here at home.
