Creating Albuquerque's First-Ever Human Peace Sign

The Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice and four other partner organizations invite the public to help create our city's first-ever Human Peace Sign. The United Nations Association, the UNM Peace Studies Program, the GenUN at UNM, and Nonviolence Training are cosponsors.

The building of the peace sign will take place at Johnson Field at the University of New Mexico Campus on Friday, September 21, at 4:00 p.m., culminating a week of events to commemorate ABQ Peace Week. A peace party will follow across the street at the the Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice, 202 Harvard Dr. SE, at 5:00 p.m. For more info, call (505) 268-9557 or email

The ABQ Peace Week events are very much in keeping with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, a global plan of action for people, planet and prosperity Goal 16 seeks to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels
