PEACE SUNDAY 2019

In these very turbulent times, we see great stress placed on the fundamental institution of democracy. This year’s Peace Sunday is designed as a forum to discuss the issues of vital concern to all of us, and actions that can be taken to sustain and improve the ongoing growth of our troubled democracy.

We are inviting leaders in a variety field to address the multiplicity of issues that challenge democracy.

Peace Sunday, UDC’s annual event that honors the United Nations International Day of Peace, (Sept 21), first began in 1982 and was produced by “The Year of Shalom Committees” as a protest against the arms race in support of the Nuclear Freeze Movement. It was a huge event at the Rose Bowl. UDC founder, Rev. Leland Stewart was on the Year of Shalom Committee and later received the rights to the name. We have continued the legacy since then with different themes every year in various locations. This year Peace Sunday will take place at the IMAN Cultural Center in Palms on Sept. 22.

Below is the flyer for Peace Sunday 2019. We look forward to seeing you there!

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.

Last year’s theme “Sacred Activism: Environmental Justice and Human Rights” challenged 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.

The event spoke 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.
