Great Peace March of History printable cards

The San Antonio peaceCENTER has developed a teaching tool called “The Great Peace March” which is an illustrated timeline of peace and justice history. It comes in a variety of formats that can be hung on the wall, projected on a screen or played as a bingo-type game. It begins with the first recorded practitioners of civil disobedience, Shiprah and Puah, the midwives who refused to kill the newborn male babies of the Hebrew women. (Exodus: 1-2, c. 1350 B.C.E.). You can download the cards as an illustrated color pdf (27 pages, 4 cards to a page) and print out your own set (they suggest using white cardstock).

Of related interest is a set of “morning meditation” cards from consisting of quotes and ideas that can be used for inspiration or discussion of peace and nonviolence issues. Get a printable copy here.

The illustrated peace and justice timeline is also available on CD, in Powerpoint and Microsoft Word format. This version consists of approximately 60 events selected from the timeline with color illustrations plus short biographies with photos of all Nobel Peace Prize recipients. Suitable for display. A $5 donation is requested to cover the cost of the disk and shipping. Contact the PeaceCenter for more information.
