Peace Week Introduction

Watch below for an Introduction to Peace Week with Quaker-in-Residence Jen Cort and Director of Diversity, Equity + Inclusion Camille S. Edwards! 

This year, we are hosting two weeks of exceptional programming for students and families designed to help us reflect, connect, and engage in this year's theme, "Amplifying and Uplifting Voice."
 
Each night of Peace Week, please join us for a different event, featuring testimony from a Holocaust survivor, community film viewing & panels, cooking with Friends Academy families, our very own Coffee House, All-School Meeting for Worship, and much more!
