Peace for Peoria

Peace for Peoria will host a Q&A at the Peoria Civic Center Theater. A panel of local civic, business and religious leaders will answer questions from attendees about Islam and Muslims in an effort to promote peace and understanding through education.

Peace for Peoria is accepting questions ahead of the event to determine which questions are asked most and ensure those are addressed.


Westminster Presbyterian Church is proud to participate in Peace for Peoria.

Peace for Peoria is an interfaith alliance dedicated to fighting fear by opening doors and hearts, bringing people of diverse faiths together in opposition to an irrational fear of Islam and Muslims, building loving relationships rooted in the traditions of each faith without denying their differences and fellowshipping with the entire city of Peoria. The Central Illinois Chapter of the Interfaith Alliance partners with the Islamic Foundation and other religious leaders and teachers to achieve a city free from religious intolerance, Islamophobia, and pre-judging others.

March 7th, 2016 was recognized by Peoria Major Jim Ardis as ‘Peace in Peoria’ Day.
