“Interreligious Peacemakers” is a volunteer, "open-membership" coalition of men and women from many intercultural, interfaith communities and organizations in Greater Cleveland. The coalition hosts monthly "brown-bag lunch" discussions, with guest-speakers, at Trinity Commons. Speaker-selection is based upon personal experience, activism, and/or expertise regarding various intercultural, interfaith, and other public-interest subjects.

A number of the women from “Interreligious Peacemakers” are members of “Women of Faith - Voices Against Violence,” a new, local, intercultural, interfaith coalition. On September 22, “Women of Faith - Voices Against Violence” presented a free, public event--with a multimedia program at Old Stone Church, a Peace Walk around Public Square, and a reception. www.facebook.com/WomenofFaithVAV.
