Dawn started working with us as a volunteer in 2008. As a member of the University Peace and Reconciliation (UPAR) Team, she helped in peace education activities among students in various universities in Davao City. In 2013, she became a full-time staff member at PBCI, serving as resource development manager. Dawn also excels in information and communication arts. We trust her to speak in behalf of PeaceBuilders Community and Coffee for Peace in public media.

Dawn Albert Pates of PeaceBuilders Community, Pat Sarenas of Mincode and Memen Lauzon of We Act 1325, join Davao Press Club’s Kapehan sa Davao. Their panel’s main call is to promote ‘ALL-OUT PEACE, NOW!’

They have organized several events to happen on March 6. It is a significant day since it marks the 40th day after the Mamasapano Tragedy. It also a day of remembrance of the Bud Dajo Massacre wherein 600 to 900 Moro civilians mostly women and children were slain in a battle against American colonizers 108 years ago. It is the National Day Towards Healing for Peace and Unity.


ALL OUT PEACE is a ‘broad call for peace’ towards mobilizing all Filipinos in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. It is a platform where citizens are emboldened to take stand for peace and reject war or any form of armed violence to prevail in our homes, communities and workspaces. Renewing this fervent beating-of-the-peace-drums and call-for-peace was forged last February 7, 2015 in Davao City wherein 30 networls of civil society groups in Mindanao, Visayas and Manila converged to reflect and strategize how to move forward in the light of the crisis in the Bangsamoro Peace Process brought about by the Mamasapano Tragedy.
