Peace in! Peace out!

Peace In! Peace Out!
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
The Boundary Peace Initiative is hosting a great event on September 20th to 21st in support of International Day of Peace. This is the day that the world gathers to call for Peaceful Resolution to violence, abuse, all forms of conflict and of course war. Musicians, entertainers, artists, and speakers will gather for a 24-hour event at the Union of Spiritual Communities of Christ (Doukhobor) Community Center in Grand Forks, BC beginning at 4 pm on September 20th until 4 pm September 21st. We invite you to attend in person or online (details on live-stream access will be available soon).
Performers from Fort St. James, Vancouver, Vancouver Island, Prince George and other regions of B.C. and even from Missoula, Montana are confirmed. A wide variety of entertainers and speakers from the Boundary, Kootenay and Okanagan will be here as well. Grand Chief Stewart and Joan Phillip are coming and a few Sinixt elders as well and will be joined by local First Nations and Métis. Some B.C. Government Cabinet Ministers and MP Richard Cannings have expressed the desire to join us. Boundary Drama and Musical troupes, the Grand Forks Choral Society, a Doukhobor Choir, will be joined by musicians, singers, dancers, and so much more. 
Admission is by donation. We encourage you to make bids at the silent auction, on line items and through a few interesting and fun filled ways happening throughout the 24 hours. The information tables will give you the opportunity to learn about other actions and groups as well. 
We are raising funds so we’re more able to educate each other on local and global issues affecting us all. We will be more able to organize conferences with international activists, host events and programs that can change the tsunami of violence threatening our very existence. 
This 24-hour variety show came into being after Dave Soroka lost his son to an overdose in 2018. Dave felt the need to honour Tyler’s support of the BPI. An event to honour this young man’s passion for peace, socio-economic justice and environmental sustainability that will inform and be fun at the same time came into being. Peace In! Peace Out! is that vehicle of honour and Tyler’s legacy.
To make this happen we need your help. We need volunteers. We need donations prior to the event to ensure we have enough funds to cover costs. We need donations at the event to ensure all our combined efforts speak to our joint commitment to be part of the solution. 
For information, to volunteer and donate call Laura at [phone redacted] or [phone redacted] or email [email redacted].
In Universal Kinship and Loving Peace,
Laura Savinkoff 
Peace In! Peace Out!
