Pacem Youth Peace Art Exhibition

As part of the Pacem in Terris 50th Anniversary in 2017 we are “going back to our roots”— the initial innocence of youth, its vision and idealism— as a way of looking forward to the next 50 years.

The Pacem in Terris Youth Peace Art Exhibition is an opportunity for all of us to learn from our younger citizens what the world should be like. What does a peaceful world look like? What should us older citizens be working towards? 

  • The 2017 Pacem in Terris Youth Peace Art Exhibition is for students, kindergarten through twelfth grade.
  • The art work will be displayed at The Delaware Contemporary (formerly Delaware Center for Contemporary Art) at the Riverfront in Wilmington during the week of September 17-24, 2017.  From there, the new exhibition will go on tour throughout our region to a diverse group of churches, temples and mosques, as well as schools, libraries, theaters, corporations and organizations.

This is a moment to bring the range of progressive social change movements together. Pushing back against the Trump agenda and at the same time pushing forward on our vision of a clean, safe world where the rights of all people are protected and expanded means we all must work together.

Tax March on Washington, D.C.

logoThe Tax March is a movement gaining momentum around the country to demand transparency and fairness from our Commander-in-Chief. Throughout his campaign, Donald Trump told the American people he would release his tax returns. Despite intense public pressure, President Trump has not yet done so – breaking with 40 years of precedent in the process. His administration’s excuse? “People don’t care.”

People do care. Without seeing his tax returns, we have no idea what he’s hiding – shady business deals? Financial ties to foreign countries? Conflicts of interest? – or who his policies are really benefitting.

On April 15, there will be a march in Washington and in communities across the country to send a clear message to Donald Trump: You work for us, and we demand answers.
