What is your Story of Peace?
Sept. 1, 2017 -- The deadline for submissions has now passed. A sincere THANK YOU to all those who sent in their stories. The Selection Committee looks forward to reading them all! Stay tuned to this page for book publication details.

Do you have a story of peace, whether in Canada or abroad?
Are you, or some Canadian you know, involved in bridge-building, whether in your communities or abroad?
Do you have an experience of reaching out to those whose ideas and perspectives differ from your own, having those difficult conversations, listening with empathy, trying to understand their perspectives, even when you disagreed with them?
Do you have a story of a unique project, program or solution you offered in a difficult or conflict-filled situation?
We would love to hear them all!
We are a civilian volunteer group that is gathering these stories, and delivering them to an independent review committee that will choose the 150 stories that will go into a book tentatively called "150 Canadian Stories of Peace", to be published by the end of the year. Stories not chosen for the first book will be kept for future editions (TBD).
Send your stories - or questions - to 150PeaceStories@gmail.com by August 31, 2017.
