The Eighth Annual Brooklyn Peace Fair 2012

We are thrilled to invite you and your organization to become a part of the Eight Annual Brooklyn Peace Fair on Saturday April 28, 11 pm to 5 pm, at Brooklyn College Student Center.

This Peace Fair includes a range of workshops and discussions, musical performances, art exhibits, and children activities which we hope everyone will enjoy. But in addition to discussing the urgent issues before us, we rejuvenate and build our connections as a community dedicated to waging peace.

Last year's Peace Fair drew over 2000 visitors. The Peace Fair is FREE and open to the public.

The theme of this year's fair : Ending War, Promoting Peace

This year we are proud to announce that we will have two featured speakers.
