In that same year she was invited to attend the 23rd International Expo in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (USA), which annually brings together artists from different parts of the world that have the African culture as a basis for their production.
In 2009, Marcia Leivas was invited back by the October Gallery, the organizer of the exhibition in Philadelphia and presents her second single exhibition, this time with a universal theme: peace. For this representation, she joined the symbology of Candomble, one of the most worshiped religions in Brazil, and the efforts of ordinary citizens interested in preserving the values of peace in their daily lives.
Since then, the artist has been producing her own exhibitions, participating in collective exhibitions and developing projects produced for teenagers from public schools and for community leaders as well. These works blend art, journalism and social discussion. Among the projects for 2011 is the publication of an art book with the history of the transgressions of the first black Brazilian clown, Benjamin de Oliveira.
