Pacem in Terris (Peace on Earth) is a grassroots, non-partisan, interfaith, member-supported non-profit organization that brings together people of all ages, ethnic backgrounds and professions for the purpose of positive peaceful change on the local, national and global level. It helps people understand that peace is not just the absence of war, violence and conflict, but a vibrant, thriving, safe, secure and sustainable neighborhood and world— that peace is a necessity for survival, not a luxury for the affluent.
YOUTH PEACE ART
The Pacem in Terris Youth Peace Art Exhibition is an opportunity for all of us to learn from our younger citizens what the world should be like.
PeaceSeekers holds educational events, public witnesses, and citizen campaigns urging non-violent diplomatic solutions rather than use of military force as a solution to problems of civil, ethnic, religious and economic conflicts.

Part of this yearlong celebration will be a series of speakers— one per month from January through May, pause for the summer months, and then resume in September through November. The talks will be near the end of the month, starting off in January, and will be in Wilmington, Delaware.
