  1. With over 80 groups already registered to table at the Peace Fair this year, it will be an excellent chance to catch up with friends, both old and new.

    And the Tucson Peace Center is offering a Climate Cabaret this year where everyone can sing, dance, recite, perform, and give artistic expression to what climate change means to them.

    Come on out to Reid Park this Saturday and enjoy the largest gathering of Peace, Social Justice, and Environmental groups in Southern AZ.
