Let’s bring everyone together—city and suburban; black, brown and white; Anglo, African, Asian, and Hispanic; native-born and immigrant; advantaged and disadvantaged; Christian, Muslim, Hindu, and Jew; young and old; people of all political views—to show that we are one community opposed to violence, poverty, racism, and exclusion.

What is the Movement for a Culture of Peace?
The Movement for a Culture of Peace is a broad-based coalition of faith, nonprofit, and community groups formed in 2014 in response to ongoing violence in Delaware. Supported by dozens of partner organizations, it has organized peace marches in a different Wilmington neighborhood each year.
In 2016, the Movement launched Peace Week Delaware to advocate for non-violent solutions to Delaware’s high rate of violence and other justice issues.
Look for a new initiative from the Movement in 2019: Nonviolent Wilmingon. Join our Movement!
