There are lots of organisations in the West Midlands, the UK and gloabally, who are doing greatw orkf or peace & justice. At Peace Hub our aim is to seek out and highlight this work (rather than reinventing the wheel by creating our own campaigns).
Our friendly, shop-style space offers a chance for those already working on a particular issue to come into contact with members of the public who are interested and would like to find out how they can get involved. And our resources (including booking our room) can be used by community groups.
So if you’re part of a group that’s working for peace and justice, please get in touch!
As well as promoting the work of other peaceful and just organisations, we’re keen to work in partnership with groups in the West Midlands who are working for a better world.
Currently we are part of Footsteps (Faiths for a Low Carbon Future) a group bringing together faiths in Birmingham to respond to the challenge of moving to a Low Carbon Future. We have also been working with a diverse range of people on to explore ‘Anti-austerity, but Pro-what’. And we work with our fellow Quaker organisations.
If your organisation would be interested in working in partnership with Peace Hub, please get in touch.
We focus on a broad range of peace & justice themes, and are keen to work together with other groups who are already taking action on those themes. You can also submit ideas for themes that we could w ork on.
We recognise that there are many peace and justice issues that individuals and groups, both within Quakers and the wider peace-movement, feel passionately about, and would like Peace Hub to take up. We aim to select a wide range of themes, but must work with finite resources and in accordance with our Quaker principles.
The West Midlands Quaker Peace Education Project (Peacemakers) are based at Peace Hub, on the 1st Floor. They work in partnerships with schools to help them build more peaceful communities by delivering training to adults and children.
A conference centre set in the heart of Birmingham, The Priory Rooms offers versatile meeting space from small meeting to up to 200 delegates. Their profits support Peace Hub and other Quaker projects.
Politics of Networks is a way of doing progressive politics, differently. It is a network of individuals who come together on the basis of shared values and concerns and engage in ideas, Big Politics and campaigning.
