Love in Action: Save Mother Earth, Wage Peace! Love in Action: Save Mother Earth, Wage Peace! is a public awareness campaign bringing people and communities together to create alternatives to violence and war, linking outcomes of violence to environmental toxicity and degradation, and taking action to promote peace, sustainability, and restoration.

The campaign launches in Vallejo, February 2016, with a series of events and an art exhibit examining how militarism directly impacts the environment and all of our lives, highlighting alternatives and positive nonviolent solutions.

Love in Action: Save Mother Earth, Wage Peace!, through the #Humanize Not Militarize exhibit, invites viewers to consider what waging peace could actually look like. This will be an ongoing and sustained campaign with many opportunities for everyone to connect, get involved, and effect positive change.
