Community Building Events
Since its inception, the UPC has held several events at the site and throughout the community bringing together thousands people from across the northwest and nation. What began as Sunday Work/Clean Up parties and BBQ to feed the volunteers turned into Sunday steering committee meetings/community dinners.
The P.E.A.C.E. Center quickly became a meeting point for young people and others inspired by the presidential campaigns of Barack Obama and Cynthia McKinney. Through its various events, activities and programs, the UPC has mobilized, inspired and activated many in our community.
UPC events offer a unique mix of education, entertainment, cultural awareness and civic engagement from weekly dinners to rally’s to candidate forums. Key annual events have included Seattle MLK County PEACE Week, Seattle Hip-Hop Leadership Conference, We Are Change Community forums and Young Voters League Voter Education Forums.
