About Us

History was made November 4, 2008 when Illinois Senator Barack Obama was elected as the 44th and first African-American President of the United States of America. In honor of his election, we will gather in Washington DC on Inauguration Day to celebrate change and “yes we did” at the premiere Inaugural Peace Ball sponsored by Busboys and Poets and the Smithsonian Postal Museum.

This unprecedented event will take place on Tuesday evening January 20, 2009 at the Smithsonian Institution National Postal Museum at Massachusetts Avenue and First Street N.E. next door to Union Station. This will be a time to celebrate this extraordinary moment in history with food, laughter, music and dance.

We have invited peacemakers from all over the globe to join us for this special experience. You will be united with hundreds of friends and allies who believe in, support and work tirelessly for peace and social justice. Our phenomenal hosts include to date: Historian Howard Zinn, Comedian Dick Gregory, Mayor Adrian Fenty, Amy Goodman of Democracy Now, Katrina Vanden Heuvel of The Nation Magazine, Laura Flanders, Barbara Ehrenreich, Anthony Arnove, and many more.

We look forward to seeing you at the Inaugural Peace Ball and thank you for your participation and support of this most memorable evening as we embark on a new era of peace, hope and possibilities.
