The History Of Peace Sunday
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.
