FIND OUT ABOUT US
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.
WHAT IS SACRED ACTIVISM?
Sacred Activism is reaching within ourselves to our deepest connectivity to spirit, and actualizing that spirit into reality through service to humanity and the planet. Sacred Activism has always found its expression through a grassroots movement of the people, enrolled in a significant consciousness shift, which has created a new paradigm. It begins with the advent of a new idea, a social need to have that idea be fulfilled, and the timing and historic circumstance to propel it into a transformative reality.
