Peace Day Pinwheel Challenge: Join Students Rebuild, the International Rescue Committee, Healing Classrooms and Global Nomads Group to help Syrian youth from conflict areas recover from crisis and grow into happy, healthy adults. For each pinwheel we send in, the Bezos Family Foundation will donate $2—up to $400,000—to IRC’s Healing Classrooms program. The more pinwheels we send, the more children we’ll help! The International Rescue Committee will distribute a selection of pinwheels to Healing Classrooms students in Lebanon and Iraq. Funding generated by the Challenge will train teachers in special techniques to engage conflict-affected children with social-emotional learning opportunities and to create secure, nurturing learning environments. Learn more about Healing Classrooms. Make pinwheels at the Harper Wing or at home! Find template of Pinwheels at http://www.

Rev. Jesse Jackson and Oklahoma City Police Chief Bill Citty will lead a community discussion on
Healing the Breach between law enforcement and minority groups as part of Oklahoma City's observance of the International Day of Peace. The event will be held on Monday, September 21, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., at the Great Hall in the University Center at Oklahoma City University.
Rev. Jackson is the pastor of East Sixth Street Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), 1139 NE 6th.

The program will be moderated by Rev. Don Heath, pastor of Edmond Trinity Christian Church. The event is free and open to the public.
Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on September 21 and is dedicated to world peace, specifically a reduction in war and violence. It was established in 1981 by a resolution of the United Nations General Assembly and has been celebrated in Oklahoma City since 2008. The theme of this year's global event is Partnerships for Peace--Dignity for All.
The Oklahoma City event is sponsored by the United Nations Association of Greater Oklahoma City, the Center for Conscience in Action, the Respect Diversity Foundation, the Peace House, Pax Christi USA, Edmond Trinity Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Joy Mennonite Church, Casady Schools Service-Learning Program, and Campaign Nonviolence.
