What began in 1981 with the United Nations General Assembly, now celebrates its 29th year of celebrating international peace on the third Tuesday of September.

Bellingham is home to the longest-running weekly peace vigil in the nation started in 1966. The Whatcom Peace & Justice Center (WPJC) provides educational programming; leadership on legislative advocacy; and opportunities to resist injustice through public protest, writing, media reform, & organizing. WPJC has hosted Amy Goodman, Rev. John Dear, Dahr Jamail, Dr. Vincent Harding, Lt. Ehren Watada, Camilo Mejia, Ray McGovern, Elizabeth de la Vega, Dr. Dahlia Wasfi, Kathy Kelly, and others.

Join WPJC and the community of Bellingham in celebrating this International Day of Peace. The Peace March will leave from Maritime Heritage Park at 5:45pm. The event will take place at Assumption Church at 6:30pm.
