International Day of Peace
Run Time:60-90 minutes


Four organizations dear to the heart of a legacy donor (Sedona International City of Peace, Mental Health Coalition Verde Valley, National Alliance for Mental Illness and Sedona international Film Festival) have come together in an alliance to offer a special event to our community on Monday, September 21, 2020 at the Mary D Fisher Theatre.  

We have come together to illuminate and transform the pronounced divisiveness in our community and our world during International Day of Peace with a first-of-its-kind “Dissolve-the-Divide” series of events at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre and Livestream through the Sedona International City of Peace Facebook page.

11:30 AM - 1:00 PM 

Dissolve the Divide between Law Enforcement and our Community
featuring Captain Jeff Newnum, Detention Services Division responsible
for incarceration of inmates and services pertaining to their health, welfare and safety

It is the intent of this event to dissolve the divide by having you listen to Captain Jeff Newnum and members of the Detention Services Division; and as you listen to their humanity, their experiences and their inner conflicts and growth – that you open your hearts to perhaps dissolve seeing them as a group versus being curious about them as individuals.

We are using the Human library format to be able to create understanding and bring healing versus amplifying the divide. You will have an opportunity to listen and then ask questions that deepen your compassion and understanding, as well as share experiences that may have been upsetting or traumatic with an intention to heal that within yourself.

At the close of this presentation and dialogue there will an authentic forgiveness ceremony that is reflective of Sedona’s healing powers. 

There will be 37 FREE TICKETS for seats physically distanced in the Mary D Fisher Theatre, and they are expected to go fast, so reserve yours today!
