Brooklyn For Peace is proud to present our 2nd annual PathMakers to Peace Awards Reception. This year also marks the 30th anniversary of the founding of Brooklyn For Peace.
To highlight the ceremony we will honor Noam Chomsky, linguist, author, political commentator and activist, and 30 years of Brooklyn For Peace working for peace and justice.
What better way for BFP to renew our efforts than to invite you to join us for a night of celebration starting off with drinks and hor d’oeuvres, followed by dinner, dessert and our keynote speaker.
This year the event will take place on Saturday, November 15, at 6:00 pm, at the historic Plymouth Church. Opened in 1846, the church was once a major Abolitionist center. Its first pastor was Henry Ward Beecher who became a leading figure in the abolitionist movement. The church was a station on the Underground Railroad.
Come out and support the honorees and this wonderful event, as your attendance would be greatly appreciated and very much needed. Help Brooklyn For Peace continue to be your voice for peace and social justice.

We are pleased to honor the following as PathMakers to Peace:
Noam Chomsky is one of our nation’s foremost public intellectuals. Since the publication of his highly influential essay, “The Responsibility of Intellectuals” in 1967, he has been a consistent voice for peace, social justice and human rights around the world. He has authored hundreds of books and articles, spoken in forums across the globe, helped countless scholars to develop their own work and provided an invaluable commentary on the lies and misrepresentations of politicians and mainstream media. For literally millions of people, his example as both intellectual and political activist has been a source of inspiration.
As a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Noam Chomsky has also achieved an international reputation as a linguist, philosopher, cognitive scientist and logician. Yet more than the sum of all these achievements, Noam Chomsky is best considered as the moral conscience of our society. Brooklyn For Peace is proud to honor him with our 2014 PathMaker to Peace award.
And to celebrate 30 year Anniversary of
Brooklyn For Peace
Brooklyn For Peace is a diverse network of Brooklyn residents-parents, non-parents, adults, youths, and neighbors-alarmed by the militarism of our society and its impact on our lives as well as the lives of people around the world. We organize community meetings and forums, set up information tables, participate in phone and advertising campaigns, meet with elected officials and participate in demonstrations. We disseminate solid and carefully researched analysis on international and domestic policies.
We are a democratically functioning non-partisan group. We provide a host of opportunities for Brooklyn residents to work for peace and social justice in ways that can accommodate busy schedules. We believe, when given t he right tools, ordinary people will change the world.
