The PEACE EDUCATION FUND (PEF) was established through the cooperation of Riverside-Salem UCC/DC & the larger community to assist in the full development of the human personality and the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. We promote understanding, tolerance, and friendship among all nations and peoples, and among all racial, ethnic, and religious groups. We respect all beings, their habitats, and their diversity.
Peace on Earth Month (POEM) 2014 is a project of PEF, created to bring together peace and environmental groups, in addition to arts, interfaith, educational, and cultural organizations - or life-sustaining efforts generally. We highlight their - and our - interconnectedness, and hold, sponsor and cross-promote/publicize such events during April, the month of Earth Day. We celebrate the interdependence of peace, in all its manifestations, and love for and care of the earth.
