We were gratified to receive this lovely letter from Development Director Marci Klein:
Last year Peace Partners' celebration took the form of a Virtual campaign. In 2019 we hosted a very successful ‘Practice Peace’ event at Croydon’s Fairfield Hall, which was streamed globally through our partnership with PeaceCast.tv.

Supporters of Peace Partners may be interested to learn about the recent national radio broadcasts by a group of young people, now known as Calle Paz y Respeto, which have been highlighted in a new video 'Peace is in the Air' featured in The Prem Rawat Foundation's currently running Looking Forward Appeal.
Back in 2018, at an event at the inaugural Croydon Festival of Peace, Peace Partners hosted the UK premiere of the documentary 'Peace is Inevitable'. It tells the story of how group members, formerly an Ecuadorian youth gang, radically changed their way of life after attending The Prem Rawat Foundation’s Peace Education Programme workshops.
In 2019 a further screening of the documentary was hosted at Croydon's David Lean Cinema, this time with a presentation from the documentary's makers, and a live link to former gang members in Ecuador.
Then, for International Day of Day 2020, Peace Partners volunteer Wendy Martin arranged a virtual interview with Paul Murtha, director of The Vibrant Village Foundation, who had personally introduced them to the workshops.
