With the aim of fostering a city-wide promotion of peace, unity and human rights, this festival hosted by the John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights and the Mahatma Gandhi Canadian Foundation for World Peace will run from September 21 to October 2, commemorating the International Day of Peace, Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday and the International Day of Non-Violence. The Edmonton Interfaith Centre will hold our annual peace flag – raising at noon outside city hall on Monday September 21st, with speakers and music.
