Anti-bullying campaigns. Community breakfasts. Peace-themed “speak-offs.” Even a mannequin challenge. From Nov. 19-26, YMCA Peace Week 2016 was celebrated in creative and wonderful ways across the country.
Throughout the week, many Associations shared their events and stories online, under the Twitter hashtags #YMCAPeaceWeek and #actforpeace as well as via Facebook. Over 125 newly-redesigned YMCA Peace Medals were presented to inspiring individuakls and groups from coast to coast.
