Peace & Justice
Since its founding, the House of Peace has partnered with organizations on the North Shore and beyond that are dedicated to the cause of peace and justice. We host regular meetings of the North Shore Coalition for Peace and Justice and Veterans for Peace. In the context of these meetings, we often see the healing that takes place when veterans of war meet children at the House who are themselves overcoming the trauma and wounds of war.
The House of Peace also works closely with the New England Peace Pagoda and its “Walk for a New Spring,” a walk that began as a spiritual response to the tragedy in New York City on September 11, 2001.
