Whereas, it is most fitting that we recognize those extraordinary individuals and organizations that strive to improve the quality of life for all; and

Whereas, the Brooklyn For Peace sponsor their Second Annual Peace Fair, a day-long event for children and adults filled with creative, educational, and fun workshops and activities that encourage non-violence and tolerance, in an effort to underscore the importance of peace for all people; and

Whereas, on behalf of all Brooklynites, I salute and commend the officers and members of the Brooklyn For Peace for their tireless efforts in organizing the Brooklyn Peace Fair, and their work in seeking and promoting nonviolent approaches to conflict resolution;

Now, therefore, I, Marty Markowitz, President of the Borough of Brooklyn, do hereby proclaim Saturday, October 16, 2004,

Brooklyn Peace Day

In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the Borough of Brooklyn to be affixed this 16th day of October, 2004,
