2020 Winter Updates

Wow! What a year this has been!! 2020 started out feeling full of hope and promise for new things and so much opportunity. As we are all still figuring out our way through this pandemic and social awakening, I wanted to recap our year and share some of our processes.

  • We started the year very excited for the NPT Review Conference in New York. We were all working on the World Conference Youth Assembly. As the pandemic bore down, we realized we would have to pivot and change our approach. We decided to hold the youth conference still but now online.

  • 05/02/2020 - World Conference Youth Assembly

    • We held the Conference on May 2nd, a Saturday at 9 AM, and had over 300 participants from all over the world! We found we were able to engage even more people, and the conference felt more accessible. We wanted to make sure there was an interactive aspect to our conference but did not want to keep people online for hours, so we broke things up and had our breakout sessions two weeks later.

  • 05/16/2020 - WCYA Breakout Sessions

    • The breakouts were very successful and led to the fantastic partnerships that have continued to bring you cyber conferences.

  • 06/19/2020 - Juneteenth | None of us are free until all of us are FREE!

    • “Black History is important and needs to be taught! Black Joy needs to be celebrated! Everyday! The fight for freedom is nowhere close to over. Modern-day slavery is real.” Fannie Lou Hamer https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=342&v=XZYinmLyOxI&feature=youtu.be. We found it especially important to look inward as the Black Lives Matter protest continued to grow nationally and abroad. We Started having much-needed conversations with all the institutions we are apart of as well as run. Systemic racism is prevalent in ALL our systems, and it is up to ALL of us to help dismantle it. Those of us who are touched by racism the least are the very people who are needed to step up the most right now. We continue to hold space for difficult conversations and provide a space where solutions are discussed AND enacted.

  • 08/02/2020 - Hiroshima 75th Memorial

  • It was such an honor to organized Indigenous Day of Unity! We brought together elders and young activists worldwide to discuss land and nature-based solutions to climate change and decolonization.

  • 11/02/2020 - Meet This Week's Speakers

    • We wanted to continue the conversation on decolonization and how we can contribute. We also thought it essential to discuss the US elections and our thoughts for the future. From the tile, you can tell we are very hopeful for the future, but we also understand all the hard work is about to start! We invite everyone to join us as we build our new world together.

  • 11/16/2020 - PEAC Press Release Nuclear Weapons to be declared Illegal January 22, 2021!
    • It’s been a long, arduous climb to this point, but the win feels good! The passing of this treaty and entering into international law is the beginning. We now have to ensure that as money is divested from the nuclear industry, it is reallocated into public health and wellbeing, breaking down systemic racism, education, and green energy.

    • Read the full Press Release here: https://www.peacinstitute.org/newsroom

  • 12/09/2020 - Join Our International Human Rights Day Cyber Conference
    • Our last conference was for International Human Rights Day. We took a look at how racism and colonialism affect human rights around the world. We revisited our conversation on hope and had a throwback lunchtime poetry hour.

    • You can watch the whole broadcast here: https://www.midheaven.network/ihrd

    Our next Cyber Conference will be in February - we’re going to be exploring sports and how athletes are changing the face of activism. Stay tuned!

    Please consider giving to our fund to ensure we can continue to bring you all this fantastic content
