WHY THE PEACE WEEK PLEDGE

  • Every year, more than 30,000 Americans have their lives cut short by gun violence.
  • The Peace Week Pledge is designed to reinforce each individual's personal commitment to making Peace a LIFEstyle 365 days a year.
  • In his New York Times Op Ed piece, even President Barack Obama said all of us have a role to play to end the epidemic of gun violence.
  • We encourage you to take the pledge, share with your school, co-workers, family and friends.
  • Together we can make peace a LIFEstyle.
