Please join us and the Missoula Peace Quilters to honor Fernanda M. B. Krum & Robert Rivers on Saturday, May 18 at Imagine Nation Brewing. At 1:30, Fernanda and Robert will offer a peace building workshop presented by Denis Matveev. Then at 3 pm, we will introduce you to the five Youth Peacemakers nominated for the Fr. Jim Hogan Search For Peace Award and then the Quilters will present a special peace quilt to honor the work Robert and Fernanda are doing to strengthen our connections to each other and heal the world. I hope you can join us. Please join us for this special celebration of peace in Missoula! The Annual Peacemaker Award is bestowed on a local citizen who demonstrates a clear and enduring commitment to the core values of the Jeannette Rankin Peace Center: non-violence, social justice and environmental sustainability.
The Missoula Peace Quilters started the Peacemaker Award in 1987 and in 1989 they asked the JRPC to assume the role of seeking nominations from the community for the award and for making the selection of the honoree.
The Quilters came together in March 1984 for the purpose of making a statement for Peace using the medium of quilting and original design.
They seek to show friendship and our belief that people the world over must unite to preserve life.
They use their love of quilting to encourage nations and individuals in their peacemaking efforts, and to teach others in schools and community places to seek ways to promote peacemaking.
