The virtual program and in-person panel discussion will explore the topic of peace through stories of individuals and groups who are advocating for more peace and just communities around the world. The Holocaust & Humanity’s Center’s Cincy Upstander Project reinforces the theme and will give attendees a deeper understanding of how they can be upstanders, and peacebuilders.
