On October 2, The Peace Alliance, with support from Ben & Jerry’s, will be hosting our 4th Annual Peace Day Scooping Celebration! We will be holding an ice cream extravaganza at our nation’s Capitol during which we will urge Congress to enjoy delicious ice cream and learn more about the Youth PROMISE Act HR.1318/S.1307.
Come help us promote the event, scoop ice cream, and educate your Representatives and Hill staffers about our efforts to reduce violence and bring sustained peace to communities across the country. This promises to be a fun event with a tremendous impact. We are expecting 1000 participants, and volunteers will receive free Peace Alliance T-shirts!
We will be hosting an invitation-only event for the staffs of Members who serve on the House Judiciary or Education and Workforce Committees followed by a larger main event open to all Hill staff, and we’re looking for volunteers who can help us throughout the day during these various programs.
