Peace Week Delaware – Sept. 15-23

Trans Activist Sarah McBride
will speak at First Unitarian

The third annual Peace Week Delaware will kick off on Saturday, Sept. 15, and run for nine days. Nearly 100 events are scheduled across Delaware. 

First Unitarian Church is more than a little involved. Our members are in leadership positions on the Peace Week Steering Committee, as well as in the Movement for a Culture of Peace, which launched Peace Week Delaware in 2016.

First Unitarian will once again sponsor a Peace Week event:

Sarah McBride and the Fight for Transgender Equality

Sarah McBride is the National Press Secretary for the Human Rights Campaign and the author of “Tomorrow Will Be Different:Love, Loss, and the Fight for Trans Equality”. In 2012, Sarah made national headlines when she came out as transgender while serving as student body president at American University. A native of Wilmington, Sarah serves on the Board of Directors of Equality Delaware. In that capacity, Sarah helped lead the successful effort to add gender identity and expression to the state’s nondiscrimination and hate-crimes laws.
