Peace Postcards was founded by Allan Weiss in December, 2008. At a young age, Allan’s parents taught him that each of us has an obligation to help heal the world. This guidance, along with his interest in folk art, inspired him to start Peace Postcards.
To date more than 26,000 Peace Postcards have been received from the United States and over 32 counties including Rwanda, Japan, Israel, China, Morocco, Iran, Iraq, Columbia, India, Canada, New Caledonia, Afghanistan, Costa Rica, England and Germany.
Peace Postcards have been shown in many locations around the world, including Honkawa Elementary School Peace Museum, Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, Japan; Tehran Peace Museum, Iran; and many venues in Louisville, Kentucky including The Muhammad Ali Center; Louisville Metro Hall; Pyro Gallery; Ekstrom Library, University of Louisville; Pegasus Gallery, Louisville International Airport; Center for Non-Violence and Peace Studies, University of Rhode Island; and All Peoples, a Unitarian Universalist Congregation.
