About the Event
The first World War had just ended and nations mourning their dead collectively called for an
end to all wars. Armistice Day was born and was designated as “a day to be dedicated to the
cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated." In 1954, the
U.S. Congress decided to rebrand November 11 as Veterans Day.
Veterans For Peace has taken the lead in lifting up the original intention of November 11th –
as a day for peace. This Armistice Day, Veterans For Peace, Military Families Speak Out and
the South Coast Interfaith Council call on the U.S. public to say no to more war &
to demand justice & peace, at home & abroad. We know Peace is Possible & call for an end to all oppressive & violent policies, & for equality for all people.
CDC recommendations will be followed. All attendees are asked to please wear a mask and practice social distancing. All are welcome! For more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
