Creating a culture of peace

Friday, September 15, 2017 - 18:30 to 20:30
Canadian Peace Initiative - Creating a culture of peace event

People are being killed and lives are being torn apart, as bombs are dropped. Social and economic structures are being destroyed, as bombs are dropped. Houses and infrastructure are being demolished, as bombs are dropped. People are being displaced internally or forced to flee as refugees, as bombs are dropped.  People are being driven to the brink of starvation, as bombs are dropped. The environment is being degraded, as bombs are dropped.

As wars are being waged in many parts of the world, these horrible consequences are the result, and occur each and every day.         


Join one of Canada’s most dynamic citizen campaigns. Canada has a greater role to play in reducing the mass suffering and death caused by war, terrorism, and violence — whether domestically or around the world.  

Join us this evening to see how we can work together to build a Canada that is leading the world in a more peaceful direction.

Canadian Peace Initiative believes in peace by peaceful means. CPI is working on a campaign to create a Department of Peace in the federal government.

Everyone is welcome.  

Light refreshments will be served.

Special guest: Theresa Dunn

-National Co-Chair of Canadian Peace Initiative.

-Peacebuilder for more than 28 years

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
