Please join us for the 2016 YMCA Peace Breakfast! We will be celebrating actions that build stronger communities as we award the 2016 YMCA Peace Medallion.
At the YMCA, we believe that peace is more than the absence of violence and conflict. Peace is the ongoing work of building and rebuilding conditions of fairness, inclusion, empathy, security, and respect for diversity. When we embody the values of PEACE through our daily actions, we can build a better community.
