Join us at World Peace & Justice Weekend, an inclusive, enriching two days where we’ll take a collective deep breath and explore sustainable techniques, applications, and ideas. The planet is our most valuable resource; let's work together to make its legacy and promise endure for all generations. We're convening the seekers, the thinkers, the inquisitive souls who understand that this task is not merely for one person. It takes our community.

World Peace & Justice Weekend offers an intentional range of activities: amazing music, art workshops, eco-centered activities for kids, practical tips, and mindful moments. We are proud to announce our keynote speaker Gladys Limón, the executive director of California Environmental Justice Alliance. Born and raised in Oxnard, Gladys experienced and witnessed first-hand the impacts of disproportionate environmental burdens in her community. She has deep experience in legal, policy, and community-based work for environmental justice and civil rights. On Oct. 12, Gladys will talk about environmental justice and what it means for our communities both local and abroad.

Thank you! By attending World Peace & Justice Weekend you are supporting • Humanitarian aid • Social justice programs • Environmental sustainability.

Come away informed, equipped, and encouraged in the knowledge that our planet will be more than well when we take the time to wholeheartedly care for it. We look forward to your presence.
