This year's theme is "A Lifetime of Peacemaking: Honoring Those Who Guided Us Here"
We hope you will join us in honoring people who have spent their lives in service of peace, social justice, equity, and equality. All of the recipients have worked for peace and have built bridges between and among communities: reaching across perceived divides of neighborhood, ethnicity, gender, race, and class.

In addition, the event includes remarks from Rev. Dr. Katherine Ragsdale, President and Dean of the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge.

This event is free and open to the public and is wheelchair accessible.
To help defray the costs of the event, the suggested donation is $10 for adults and $5 for children.

Since 1995, the Cambridge Peace Commission has honored individuals and groups in Cambridge who have worked for peace and justice. Out of more than 25 nominations received this year, the Peace Commission selected six individuals representing the breadth and depth of efforts for peace and justice in our city - from the local to the global - in families, schools, congregations, and neighborhoods.
