FERNDALE – On Sunday, May 21 Peace Action of Michigan will award honorees in the community at its 6th Peace Builder Celebration at Focus: HOPE in Detroit.
Honorable David Bonior, retired member of U.S. Congress and current Wayne State University professor, will be the event’s keynote speaker.
“We felt the work he has done has always been important,” said Helen Weber, co-chair of the board of directors for Peace Action of Michigan. “He always seemed to be a friend to the Peace Movement and effective in the work that he’s done. He often challenges us. We do more as a result of his contact with us.”
Peace Action, the 50-year-old state affiliate of the largest grassroots peace organization in the country, will be holding the celebration. Honorees include Rudy Simons, Grassroots; Michigan Senator Hansen Clarke, Elected Official; Maxwell Cameron and Jennifer Teed, Young Adult; Cranbrook Peace Foundation, Organization; Eugene Perrin, Lifetime Achievement.
