Peace Banner Display
& Bell-Tolling

People’s Plaza, Independence Mall,
Market Street, at 5th Street,
in Philadelphia.

Stop and Partake in a visual and quiet bell-tolling experience
in nonviolent resistance and peacemaking.

The display is comprised of  large, colorfully dramatic banners,  from the Brandywine Peace Community’s huge supply of compelling  banners and graphics representing our history of anti-war and nonviolent resistance over the past four decades.

We celebrate those that made these banners: from the beginning in 1977, Beth Centz, co-founder of the Brandywine Peace Community, Lyn Currey (now deceased), Lou Ann Merkle, and, our most recent banner maker, Melissa Elliot.

Throughout the display our decades-0ld peace bell will toll and participants will stand or sit (on folding chairs they bring) while holding a poster available at the display conveying
a message of hope and our Independence Day cry:
peace in our communities and the world,
justice among people and with the earth.

Participants are invited come and go during the display.

*The display is dedicated to the memory of Margaret “Peggy” Hasbrouck,
who for many years not only housed the Brandywine Peace Community office
and staff accommodations in her Swarthmore home, but was a presence of
activism, service, and utter caring in and for everyone.
