Save the Date for the RVA Peace Festival




The 13th annual RVA Peace Festival will be held on October 1 (location to be determined). With an emphasis on “Peace begins at home”, festival organizers believe peace occurs through education about other faiths, beliefs, races and cultural traditions.

        A major goal for 2017 is to delve deeper into the festival’s mission to help the community understand other cultures, religions and races. Now more than ever, creating a truly diverse and safe community is needed in the Richmond area. The RVA Peace Festival strives to bring awareness and education around issues of racism, xenophobia and other forms of prejudice.
