The Mediation Center of the Coastal Empire will be hosting Savannah Day of Peace on September 25, 2022 in Daffin Park. The Day will feature a peace parade led by Savannah Mayor Van Johnson and Savannah City Council members. The 2022 Peacebuilder Award Honoree will be announced and the City of Savannah’s new Peace Proclamation will also be on display.
This event is open and free to the public!
The Chamber invites all members to support this coordinated initiative by the Savannah community to counter violence and save lives. The Mediation Center plans to organize monthly peacebuilding events on the 11th of each month at different locations across Chatham county. These events will feature neighborhood-based activities and mediation training designed to engage local community members, youth, faith leaders, law enforcement, and business and professional associations in peacebuilding efforts.
Executive Director of the Mediation Center, Jill Cheeks, says that they are “deeply honored to be the first city in the Peach State to celebrate the International Day of Peace in an intentional way.” Their aim is to increase peace in the community, counter acts of violence, become conflict-resilient, and encourage unity.
