At noon on September 20, 2015, rescheduled from May 2, the Trends Research Institute will launch Occupy Peace, a movement designed to reinstate the core values that gave birth to this nation and to provide the tools for advancing peace and restoring prosperity.
The roots of this movement will take hold at the heart of the oldest intersection in the United States of America. At the corners of Crown and John streets in Kingston, New York, stand four magnificent pre-Revolutionary War stone structures. These buildings stand in the shadow of the Kingston Courthouse, constructed in 1789. The courthouse and earlier buildings on the site (since 1683) were the scene of critical episodes in the founding of the nation and the writing of the United States Constitution. There is no more meaningful and inspiring location at which to replant the seeds of true democracy than here; no better place to resample our moral and constitutional DNA than here.
Attendees gathered on these historic streets will learn the steps they can take in their communities to demand that peace, not endless war, drive the agendas of their elected officials. Visit Occupypeace.us.
