The Cambridge Peace Commission has awarded the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center a 2008 Cambridge Peace and Justice Award in recognition of our contribution to peacemaking.
Since 1995, the Cambridge Peace Commission has honored individuals and groups in Cambridge who have worked for peace and justice. The theme for the 2008 awards is “Peace Begins at Home: Celebrating the Peacemakers in our Midst”. Out of more than 50 nominations received this year, the Peace Commission selected 10 individuals and 4 groups representing the breadth and depth of efforts for peace and justice in Cambridge - from the very local to the global - in families, schools, congregations, and neighborhoods. BARCC is honored to have been chosen as one of the four group recipients.
A recognition event will take place on Sunday, November 16 from 4:00pm to 7:00pm at the Dante Alighiere Cultural Center at 41 Hampshire Street, Cambridge. The event includes an informal dinner, an address by activist and academic Rev. Edward Rodman of the Episcopal Divinity School, the presentations of the awards, and live music. For more information or to RSVP, contact the Executive Director of the Cambridge Peace Commission, Brian Corr, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617.349.4694.
