TULSA, Okla. – A local organization’s campaign for peace is going viral.
The Islamic Society of Tulsa started the ‘The Peace Project,’ inviting people from all walks of life to pose with a sign that states their name along with their occupation or a characteristic and #IStandForPeace.
Participants have ranged from religious leaders, athletes and physicians to diverse groups of family and friends.
Photo shoots with the campaign have taken place at various events and locations, including the Hate Free Tulsa Peace Rally, Fellowship Congregational United Church of Christ, Boston Avenue United Methodist Church and United Campus Ministry at the University of Tulsa.
Now, one is coming to Oklahoma City.
The photo shoot is scheduled from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday at the Mayflower Congregational Church.
The public is invited to “to have your picture taken, meet new friends and let everyone know you stand for peace.”
In the past, participants of the project have also included a Lakers fan, a musician, a reporter who was quoted saying “I like drama in my TV shows but peace in my life” and a baby that “can’t stand on her own yet but definitely stands for peace.”
