CNV Southern California’s Week-Long Fast for Culture of Peace

Posted by Ryan Hall

Campaign Nonviolence Southern California has shared news about the week-long fast they organized during the CNV nationwide week of actions in September .  Fr. Chris Ponnet, who led the week long rotating fast, reports that 21 people participate. Bishop Alemany High School students in Los Angeles (above) joined in the effort by engaging in an overnight fast. They had a great time writing letters decorated with peace signs to children in Afghanistan. These will be delivered to them by Voices for Creative Nonviolence’s co-director, Kathy Kelly.

In the midst of the fast the students made sandwiches that were delivered to a homeless shelter the next morning.

CNV organizer Sharon Halsey-Hoover is thrilled to share this news about the fast — and to extend a word of encouragement and thanks to the students and to Donald Levan, the Director of Campus Ministry at Bishop Alemany High.
