ABOUT: PEACE (People Engaged in A Cultural Exchange) Birmingham, is a monthly dialogue group for teens from different cultures and faiths with the goal to create doors through which we can enter each other's communities to nurture and sustain a Birmingham that values and welcomes people of different race, religion, creed, nationality, school, gender, sexual orientation, immigration status, ability, and cultural background. PEACE Birmingham provides a safe, welcoming, open environment in which issues such as stereotypes and prejudice are discussed.
HISTORY: Founded in January 1996 by Lois Cohen, Mark Gaines, and Bobbie Siegal as a project of Temple Emanu-El, PEACE Birmingham was created to provide a place for African American and Jewish teens to get to know one another and become allies as in the 1960s Civil Rights struggle. In 1998, the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute joined as a sponsoring partner and in 2007, PEACE was opened to welcome young people of all races and religions who sought to build relationships and confront prejudice.
