On Sunday, June 5, 2022 at 2:22 PM CDT,  join us online to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of
Peace Sunday (Pasadena 1982), and 
the One-Million Nuclear Freeze Rally (New York 1982)

The first Peace Sunday held in 1982, was a massive, star-studded event held at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. Attended by 100,000 people opposing the nuclear arms race and in support of a nuclear freeze. On June 12th, 1982, a week after Peace Sunday at the Rose Bowl in California, over one million people marched and demonstrated from the United Nations to New York City’s Central Park, demanding nuclear disarmament and an end to the Cold War arms race, making it the largest disarmament rally in American history.

The Unity and Diversity World Council (UDWC) was part of the original organizing committee for Peace Sunday. UDWC has served as the convening organization since then, carrying on the legacy of Peace Sunday in the spirit of building a sustainable future of peace on Earth. UDWC has continued to produce annual Peace Sunday events in the Los Angeles area, focusing on themes pertaining to the well-being of our global family and all life on our planet. 

Since 2020, after the pandemic lockdowns were implemented, UDWC and its Affiliates: One Global Family Alliances and the Jerusalem Prayer Project created a webumentary called “PEACE SUNDAY 2020: We Carry The Dream.”  In 2021, the same Affiliates began organizing an online “SACRED ACTIVISM: Peace Sundays Revolution” broadcast series.

PEACE SUNDAY 2020: We Carry The Dream is a free streaming webumentary, a spiritual call to action empowering us to create a peaceful, equitable, and sustainable future for all. This year’s production connects the inspirational message of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s historic ‘I Have A Dream’ speech, one of the great articulations of American democracy, with the current issues of today including the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement for racial justice, Covid-19 Pandemic, the economic collapse, the climate change crisis, the rise of women, and the recognition of indigenous peoples and their rights, all taking place in an election year of great consequence.

The Global Webumentary Premier was released on December 13th, 2020 accessible on our websites:  PeaceSundays.org and links on UDCworld.org, as well as on ‘Peace Sundays’ YouTube channel and Facebook page. It features curated archival content from MLK’s speech, exclusive videos produced by the Jerusalem Prayer Project and Videocratic Media from Israel, Palestine, Charlottesville, and the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, as well as videos from other sources relating to the Standing Rock Pipeline, and the decommissioned, yet extremely dangerous San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station in Southern California.

Prominent featured voices include:  Vice President Al Gore, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Congresswoman Karen Bass, Rev. James Lawson, Rev. William Barber, Rev. Michael Beckwith, Rabbi Sharon Brous, Dr. Melina Abdulah of BLM Los Angeles, Native American Elders — Clan Mother Alda Glover, Chief Daniel Ramos, Grandmother Adelia Sandoval, and an exclusive, never before seen interview with Lakota-Sioux Nation Elder, AIM Activist, Actor and Musician, the late Floyd Red Crow Westerman. This unique webumentary showcases JPP’s and Videocratic’s impressive archive of social justice content, together with rich musical elements produced by Stephen Fiske, and other artists.

The Significance of Peace Sunday

By David J. Harris

Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on the 21st of September. The General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. 

The United Nations Member States adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals in 2015 because they understood that it would not be possible to build a peaceful world if steps were not taken to achieve economic and social development for all people everywhere, and ensure that their rights were protected. 

The Sustainable Goals cover a broad range of issues, including poverty, hunger, health, education, climate change, gender equality, water, sanitation, energy, environment, and social justice.  Sustainable Development Goal 16 “Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions” calls for promoting peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, providing access to justice for all, and building effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions at all levels. 

A peaceful society is one where there are justice and equality for everyone. Peace will enable a sustainable environment to take shape and a sustainable environment will help promote peace.   

 

The theme for the International Day of Peace in 2018 was “The Right to Peace – The Universal Declaration of Human Rights at 70”

The theme celebrated the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Seven is the most spiritual number and it represents magic and the perfection of completion in both physical and spiritual things. We have Completion.

Our demise is that few are aware that we have moved from the Age of Communication and Consciousness to the Age of Wisdom and Kindness.

Our United Nations, with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, our highest spiritual law that is the functional bottom line of our Religions – is about caring for each other.  Also, this is Our Highest Moral and Legal Law.

Celebrate with us annually on:
September 21st Founding of our United Nations International Day of Peace
October 24th Founding of o
ur United Nations
December 10th Founding of our Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Now we promote awareness to choose Available Sustainable Prosperity For All Over Pending “catastrophe beyond conception.”  ~ Albert Einstein

 

We Believe in 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.

Sacred Activism begins within ourselves, is based in non-violence, and extends through service that entails activism. Activism calls us to use our voice and propel that voice into social action.  If we just stand by without speaking out, without participating actively in a cause we believe in, we can become complicit in the perpetration of the unconscionable.  In activism, we bear witness to what is going on, observe and expose where there is blindness, a denial, an injustice, inequity, or crime has occurred, and organize, mobilize and engage in recognizing the dilemma, bringing accountability, offering non-violent alternatives, and in creating a sustainable solution.

The activism must get in the way to disrupt the perceived injustice and corruption, and devise a strategy on how to raise public awareness in identifying the change that’s needed, and present viable ways to impact policy.  No one individual can tackle all the issues of the world, but we know we are not alone.  In these times, the voices of progressive, sacred activism have never been more needed in the call to use our voice, our vote, our organizing, our petitioning, our protest, our non-violent civil disobedience, our marching, and our sacred activism to serve the calling of our conscience.
