Winner: Social Justice Commission Award 2018
PEACE is Positive Empathy and Community Engagement. It is a group of humanitarians who wish to not only discuss, but do – connecting community, building educated conversations and friendships, changing the dialogue from hate speech to understanding. PEACE is not religiously or politically aligned and has no agenda other than peace and understanding. PEACE formulates programs to assist our refugees, people seeking asylum, homeless and at risk locals and every-day humans to communicate and freely participate in everything this wonderful region has to offer.
PEACE provides necessary items for community charities, run events and groups and assist in re-homing new Australians, welcoming people into our homes and support networks, with home visits and assistance, with anything from school work to cooking.
PEACE assists our homeless and those less fortunate in our local community by providing ongoing services to local charities and service providers and hosting a variety of free community events. Most of what is provided by PEACE is friendship, security and help to those within our community who need it. People arriving here without family or social fabrics, people who already live here but who have lost their family and social fabric need, want, ask for someone to be their ‘tribe’, their ‘group’, their ‘friend’ and PEACE provides that and more with positivity, with empathy and with engaging with the established community sectors.
PEACE keeps its followers updated on humanitarian events and news in our community, around Australia and across the world. Hundreds of people join PEACE on social media from the Toowoomba region, throughout Australia and from countries such as France, England, Ireland, Scotland, Thailand, Iraq, Bangladesh, Canada and the Americas, to name a few.
