Regularly Scheduled Events at the Peace Center

Saturdays - Free Food Distribution - Open to all

9:00am - until all food is distributed, typically 9:45am (times will vary depending on deliveries & quantity of food received on the day). 

This is a free service with no paperwork needed. It is a first come first serve line that is formed outside. Bring your own box/bag. Please do not take items from the tables until you are notified the line is open. Volunteers will let you know how many items you are able to take from each table once we’ve started. You are allowed to go through the line as many times as you need. If a person comes who hasn't been through they will be placed in front of those that already have. If you drive, please do not park in the Center’s parking lot - it is for volunteers only during Food Distribution. Please be patient and kind to each other & the volunteers. 

Thank you!

The Andi Leadership Institute for Young Women is excited to announce that it will hold its fifth in-person program in Washington, D.C. in August 2024!

     The theme for ALI’s 2024 program is Understanding the Other: A Path to Healing & Reconciliation. As global conflicts and domestic divisions fester, there is no better time to learn how to heal yourself, reconcile with others, and speak truth to power.

     The Institute seeks eight motivated American women, ages 18-27, from a diversity of backgrounds.  Each must have a demonstrated interest in peacebuilding, conflict transformation, and leadership. 

     The 2024 ALI program will take place from August 10-17 in Washington, D.C. Housing will be included. For more information on program specifics, contact info@andileadership.org.

     All applications are due by May 26, 2024. APPLICATION FORM HERE: http://www.andileadership.org/august-2024-program-application.html

The governor is responsible for setting university policy for such things as investments, military research and campus police harassing the solidarity encampment. Tell the governor to divest the university and state from Israeli companies and the war research done here that is carrying out the genocide against Palestine.

Send emails & phone calls to UNM Regents: Phone: (505) 277-7639 Email: regents@unm.edu

"Dear UNM Board of Regents,

As a (student/alumni/faculty/staff/community) member of the University of New Mexico I am urging that you support the demands presented by the UNM Solidarity Palestinian Encampment. We recognize UNM's direct connections to genocide and apartheid through its investments and relationships with various corporations, institutions and other entities and we demand immediate change. We are UNM and we will not allow our money to be used for death and destruction.

Further, I condemn the brutalization of students expressing their first amendment rights, and demand the charges be dropped against all those arrested the morning of April 30th, 2024. You can ignore the calls for justice and brutalize students with riot police, but you cannot stop the tides of change.  

Once again, I urge you to support the demands linked below. Encampments will continue until demands are met!

Thank you."

Donations can be made to the Activist Fund via Paypal at the ABQ Center for Peace and Justice website: https://www.abqpeaceandjustice.org/your-contribution.

If you are mailing a check for the activist fund, please make the check out to the Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice and put "activist fund" in the note line.
