VA License Plate Celebrates Community-Building

A Virginia license plate supporting unity and community peacebuilding is available for purchase through the Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles.


Resolution Virginia worked with graphic artist Dean Paris of Paris Designs and the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to create the second of two Community Peacebuilding license plates. 

The first Community Peacebuilding license plate, produced by artist Liz Frankl of Frankl Creative , contains the image of a dove and the word “Peace”.   For the new plate, the nonprofit group wanted to promote the ideas of civil discourse and community-building.  A photographic image of human arms of varied skin tones holding up the globe was chosen.  Underneath this image is a skyline that transitions from urban to suburban to rural. 


The plates can be obtained by visiting Department of Motor Vehicle offices or going to the C for “Community Peacebuilding” or P for “Peace” in the Special Plates section of the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles website.

$15 of each $25 purchase supports the community peacebuilding work of Virginia’s not-for-profit community-dispute-resolution centers that are members of Resolution Virginia.
