Promote Peace - Atrium

Tuesday, November 1, 2016 - 4:30 pm

To promote peace and tolerance in the law school community and beyond, Detroit Mercy Law will host a dedication and blessing ceremony of a peace pole in the courtyard, followed by a presentation in the atrium where law students will share stories of discrimination based on race, religion, gender, and ethnic background.

The peace pole is an internationally-recognized symbol of our hopes and dreams for peace in this world. This upcoming Promote Peace event is an effort to promote a culture of peace beginning with law students and expanding outward. Detroit Mercy Law joins many other organizations with a peace pole in Detroit, including the McNichols Campus of Detroit Mercy, Freedom House, Hope House, and the Fort Street Presbyterian Church.

For additional information, please contact Prof. Anne Yantus.
