Toward Peace is a multi-activity project of the Mission Inn Foundation exploring the history of the Inn’s founder, Frank A. Miller and his peace activism.  The project includes an exhibition and other public programs looking more deeply into Miller’s history – and exploring peace more broadly for us today as individuals and as communities.

This project was made possible with support from California Humanities through a Humanities for All Project Grant.
