On Aug. 27, 1928, U.S. Secretary of State Frank Kellogg and French Foreign Minister Aristide Briand signed a pact outlawing war. Fifteen nations signed the pact that day. Eventually, an additional 47 signatories joined them.

To help publicize this little-known fact promoting universal peace, WSFPC sponsors an annual Peace Essay Contest.

Please join us at this awards luncheon as a way to show your support for this positive peace initiative and to commemorate the date of its signing.

Featured speaker will be author, activist, journalist and radio host David Swanson who also is a five-time nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize. His topic will be

“10 Ways We Pretend War Is Not a Crime and How to Change Them.”

You may reserve tickets by emailing us at wsfpc.peace@gmail.com, or by phoning us at (630) 510-8500, ext. 104, by Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2019. Checks ($35 a ticket) may be sent to us at 213 S. Wheaton, Wheaton, IL 60187. You also may pay for your tickets at the door.
