Peace Works - KC is an active organization promoting peace by holding seminars, engaging in serious demonstrations and protests along with the hard work of research and public education. Members of Peace Works have been “crossing the line,” and getting arrested to promote public awareness of the various forms of continuing US military expansion.

Peace Works is an affiliate of Peace Action, the combination of the Nuclear Freeze movement and SANE, working for peace internationally, nationally and locally, and especially for the elimination of nuclear weapons.
11:00 a.m. Spiritual Celebration: “Climate change, Denial, and Adaptation"
This service will recognize that a sustainable planet requires human adaptation and cooperation. Humans regularly deny inconvenient or uncomfortable facts about our world. Our guest, Dr. Brian Thomas, will discuss some examples of denial, and how in the case of climate change, shifting our focus from control to adaptation may help build a more sustainable society.
Our nursery is open starting at 9:15 a.m.
