The 2nd Annual Peace Heroes Gala takes place on April 25th

CT Style

We are joined by President and CEO, Iran Nazario and Peace Hero, Irene Kish from Peace Center of Connecticut, located in Hartford.

After the tragedy in Newtown, a group led by State Senator Beth Bye created an all-day, facilitated symposium. The goal was to bring together urban and suburban groups working on solutions to gun violence to find common ground.

Representatives from all over the state were invited to take part. It was huge success on many levels including the depth of the conversations and the wide range of community representation at the table.  They aim to be an outcomes-driven organization that is evidence-based and will continually measure and improve our programming to maximize their impact.

Peace Heroes Gala will take place on April 25th, 2019 at 6PM at the Pond House Cafe in West Hartford. For registration and ticket information, click here.
