Rotary Peace Pole Project
A Peace Pole is an internationally recognized symbol and reminder that peace is possible. The effort is part of Rotary International District 5100’s plan to plant 100 + Peace Poles throughout the Portland metro area on Friday, April 21, 2017. The poles display the all-inclusive universal message “May Peace Prevail on Earth,” and are intended to inspire unity among people of all cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds.
The Peace Pole Map above was created by the Rotarian Action Group for peace, and can be found on their website at rotarianactiongroupforpeace.org
What is the Peace Pole Map?
By using the map, you are able see the location where each of the peace poles are planted. You can use the map to enter in your own location and find the nearest peace pole to you!
Plan a Peace Pole walk with your friends and family by simply entering your starting location in the “direction tool” and the address of peace pole you’d like to visit, and the Map will give you directions! Then, check out the Peace Poles that are close to one another to visit multiple peace poles!
Fellowship Opportunity (Rotary Clubs)
You can also use the “grouping tool” to choose a specific Rotary club to see which Peace Poles they have sponsored! We encourage you to get familiar with the leading peacebuilder Rotary clubs in the Oregon/Washington area by exploring the Map and planning an activity with those clubs. Together you can visit their sponsored peace pole locations and get acquainted with the various Peace Pole communities!
