A Night To Remember— Our Pathmakers To Peace Gala Dinner

November 30, 2017

It was a night to remember. So said….everyone who attended this year’s Pathmaker To Peace gala dinner. Sponsored by Brooklyn For Peace, it brought some 200 people together at Brooklyn Height’s historic Plymouth Church. The church was a center of anti-slavery abolitionist action under its great minister, Henry Ward Beecher.

And the Pathmakers award goes to…Leslie Cagan, a true Pathmaker To Peace.

Enjoying drinks and a great buffet, we assembled to honor those activists who had championed and blazed paths for the movement for peace and justice. This year’s honorees were—

Linda Sarsour, Palestinian-American human rights activist and co-chair of the historic Women’s March in 2017 that brought a million people to Washington to protest the election of Trump and his proposed agenda.

Leslie Cagan, for her lifetime of activism in the movements for peace (a founder of United For Peace And Justice) and environment (an organizer of the enormous People’s Climate March in NYC).

UPROSE, an organization of climate and social justice activists led by women of color. It’s organizing young people as future leaders of the progressive movement and is based in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park.

Many remarked, upon leaving the church, that this was a memorable evening indeed and that during these ominous times of Donald Trump, it provided a very needed uplift and boost to our spirits as it showed that our movement is alive and well and is fighting back .

The evening’s resounding message, echoed throughout and without: “We’re moving forward! And we’re not going back!”
