Baltimore Beloved Community Awakening Walk

2015-09-19 12:01 pm

On Saturday, September 19, 2015, Configuration Performing Arts Network, Inc., will host the Baltimore Beloved Community Awakening walk for a transformed city in partnership with One God One Thought Center and The Trail of Dreams World Peace Walkers. On that day, we will unite with communities around the world to observe the International Day of Peace. We invite citizens, students, community groups, organizations and all interested parties to walk with us in solidarity around our common declarations for a new, healed, transformed, and awakened Baltimore.

The Baltimore Beloved Community Awakening walk will connect Baltimore to events and activities happening around the globe during that weekend leading up to Sept. 21st. The walk will begin at Harlem Square Park and culminate with a peace pole planting ceremony in the Sandtown-Winchester community, to be led by international peace walkers and URI Global Trustee Audri Scott Williams and Peace Ambassador Karen Hunter Watson. An initiative of The Beloved Community Awakening Movement, Audri and Karen have previously united with community members to plant peace poles in Westport and at the One God One Thought Center in Randallstown. Baltimore is one of 45 cites to hold these international symbols of peace.

The core team for the Baltimore Beloved Community Awakening walk will host discussion groups in August and September on the historical significance of peace walks and the impact of local walks & marches for various causes. The team currently seeks hands-on support from community groups, organizations and individuals to (1) participate in discussion groups; (2) spread the word about the walk to their networks; (3) recruit volunteers, and (4) recruit sponsors. For more details on how to get involved, follow us on Facebook at Baltimore Beloved Community Awakening.

A Day Devoted to Strengthening the Ideals of Peace

International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) is observed around the world each year on 21 September. Established in 1981 by resolution 36/37, the United Nations General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. Furthering the Day’s mission, the General Assembly voted unanimously in 2001 to adopt resolution 55/282 establishing 21 September as an annual day of non-violence and cease- fire.

Anyone, anywhere can celebrate Peace Day. It can be as simple as lighting a candle at noon, sitting in silent meditation, or doing a good deed for someone you don’t know. Or it can involve getting your co-workers, organization, community or government engaged in a large event. You can also share thoughts, messages and pictures to commemorate Peace Day on social media.
