Make a commitment to a just peace!

Join us next week for the 2015 Media Justice Media Violence Fast from September 15-21, 2015. 

Take this opportunity for your just peace congregation or your family to spend a week violence-free to honor the International Day of Prayers for Peace, September 21, 2015.  This year is the United Church of Christ's first Just Peace Sunday on September 20, 2015.

What impact will it have on you?

Take the Media Fast Pledge:

  • I pledge to abstain from violent television programs, movies and video games from September 15-21, 2015
  • I pledge to dedicate myself to peace during this time
  • I pledge to share my fast with my family and friends and encourage them to participate also.

Sign up or find out more about the media fast.

Did you know?

  • Our children will see an estimated 100,000 acts of violence on television in the next 10 years.
  • There is a stronger connection between violence on television and aggressive behavior than the connection between lead exposure and lower IQs in children.
  • Children spend more time (6 1/2 hours per day) in front of computer, television and game screens than any other activity except sleeping.

The 33rd Annual Parker Lecture is October 20, 2015 in Washington DC.
