PEACE SUNDAY 2018
Peace Sunday 2018, sponsored by Unity & Diversity World Council, along with One Global Family Foundation, Interfaith Communities United for Peace & Justice, IMAN Cultural Center and other co-sponsors, is a spiritual call to action, empowering us to build a peaceful and sustainable future.
This year’s theme “Sacred Activism: Environmental Justice and Human Rights” challenges us, in these increasingly turbulent times, to speak up, stand up, and actualize our most sacred values in our individual lives, our families, communities, nations, and world.
This year, our event speaks to how our sacred activism can powerfully address the injustices being done to our planet in this age of climate change, as well as the injustices suffered by the most vulnerable members of our human family as a result of both political and economic policies.
Peace Sunday features inspiring speakers, music, displays of non-profit organizations, and serves as a day of collaborative participation toward creating a more just and peaceful world. Peace Sunday includes a morning interfaith service with prayers, chanting, ceremony and a Quranic recitation, a “Justice Luncheon” co-sponsored by Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace, and the main afternoon stage program which features keynote speakers, music, multimedia and ceremony.

That year, our sacred activism addressed nuclear proliferation and the danger of nuclear waste, which is of specific and immediate concern to us in Southern California due to 3.6 million pounds of nuclear waste potentially being stored in steel drums on the beach at the decommissioned San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station.
