About the Event
The Peace Builder Awards have spotlighted over 150 individuals and organizations since 2003, whose remarkable acts of community-building have strengthened our neighborhoods, schools, and Whatcom County at large. The evening will highlight our 2023 Peace Builder award winners, whose work in the areas of Social Justice, Education, Reconciliation, and Collaboration have made Whatcom County a more just and peaceful place to live.
The Peace Builder Awards also serves as a core fundraising event, to support WDRC’s full range of conflict prevention and intervention services for individuals, families, organizations, and businesses. Can't make it to the event? Please consider making a donation to support WDRC's programs.
Funds raised throughout the event will help to reunite parents with their children, divert the school-to-prison pipeline for local youth in the juvenile justice system, imbue creative conflict resolution skills in community members of all ages, and so much more. With ALL of WDRC's services provided on a sliding scale, and many programs offered completely free of charge, philanthropic support is imperative to maximizing our impact!
We owe so much to our wonderful sponsors!
