Mediation Center to host Savannah Day of Peace

Georgia, USA: On Sunday Sept. 25 from 12 to 4 p.m., local nonprofit the Mediation Center of the Coastal Empire will host the first annual Savannah Day of Peace at Daffin Park. The event will follow the International Day of Peace on Sept. 21, which is declared by the United Nations General Assembly. These observances are devoted to promoting peace, non-violence and equality among all people.

Locally, the Savannah Day of Peace is an intentional peacebuilding event designed to help bridge gaps and unite the community. The event arose from a need recognized by the Mediation Center team members, a need that became particularly prominent during the onset of the pandemic.

“During that time, we learned a lot and we also saw that our community is more in need than ever for conflict resolution skills,” said Jill Cheeks, executive director of the Mediation Center.
