It's that time of year again and we are thrilled to invite you and your organization to become a part of the Eight Annual Brooklyn Peace Fair on Saturday April 28, 11 pm to 5 pm, at Brooklyn College.

Through workshops on current events, music, arts activities, discussion groups, video presentations, information tables, and performance, we encourage all to develop a vision of a country where all people can enjoy their human and civil rights and lead lives of dignity and fulfillment.

Last year's Peace Fair drew over 2000 visitors. The Peace Fair is FREE and open to the public.

The theme of this year's fair : Ending War, Promoting Peace
