The Peace Train Tour had one message: Peace and Unity. Sharon Katz and Wendy Quick joined NBC 10’s Vai Sikahema to discuss how the tour started in South Africa, and is now making its way across America to spread its message. Please click this link to see the broadcast on WCAU-TV in Philadelphia.

Ever since the August 2015 release of When Voices Meet (www.WhenVoicesMeet.com), the award-winning documentary film about The Peace Train, we’ve received impassioned calls from throughout the US. The film has inspired people to re-examine the issues currently dividing Americans and to do something constructive about improving human relations and social justice. In response to all the requests, we organized The Peace Train 2016 Tour Across America from July 9-18. We hope you’ll join us or attend a performance when The Peace Train arrives in your community on the next leg of this historic movement.
