All are welcome to attend any or all sessions. Over the month of January, we will explore:

  • ​January 2nd: What does sustainability mean to you?

  • January 9th: “There is no such thing as ‘away’. When we throw anything away, it must go somewhere.” – Annie Leonard

  • January 16th: “We never know the worth of water till the well is dry.” – Thomas Fuller

  • January 23rd: “We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.” – Native American Proverb

  • January 30th: What bearing does sustainability have on a culture of peace?

 ACPC Office • 33 First St. Suite 1 • Ashland, OR (diagonal across from Post Office) • 541-552-1061

• Wednesday Community Gathering: 4pm - 5:45pm (FREE)

We actively encourage everyone in our community to join us for our open invitation community gatherings each Wednesday, in our office, at 4:00 pm.


Here you will learn all of the information you need about the Ashland Culture of Peace Commission and how you can become involved in creating a culture of peace in our community. This is an experiential gathering where we ask each person to reflect on what a culture of peace means to them. Sharing this with one another not only brings us closer together as a community but creates a felt experience of a culture of peace. It is from this felt experience that we learn what our role as a peace ambassador could be in our own town.


We define a peace ambassador as anyone who:

  • Wishes to see a culture of peace here and ultimately throughout the world

  • Feels aligned with the values of authenticity, respect, compassion, and inclusivity

  • Recognizes that all perspectives are needed in a culture of peace

  • Is curious about how other’s view the world

  • Is willing to take emotional risks, reaching out to fellow community members to ask the question, "What does a culture of peace mean to you?”


We believe that peace begins within each one of us and in the maxim that we cannot give away what we ourselves do not possess. Thus every gathering and meeting we have is a practice ground for discovering how to create a culture of peace. If you are ready to connect with others in exploration and consider your role in creating a culture of peace, this meeting is for you. Please join us.
