September 21-27, 2014 Campaign Nonviolence Action
Planning an island-wide “Stop the Violence” Campaign, which will possibly include:
1) A walk (Awareness)
2) Candelight Vigil for Victims and Lost Loved ones to Violence
3) Requesting a statement by our Dept. of Ed. Director that any teacher or staff who strikes a student will be prosecuted to the fullness of the law. (In support of our governor signing a law defining child abuse)
4) Youth Talks at the schools, youth events, programs (skits and exercises that talk about violence – domestic violence, bullying, etc… and teaching them exercises that we can do to defuse anger.
With each event we will present Pace e Bene and encourage people to sign the pledge.
Also, the International Legion of Mary at Holy Family Parish (Fatu-o-aiga) Parish in Tafuna, American Samoa started a 9-day Novena on the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary, who is the Queen of Peace, to pray for the success of Campaign Nonviolence in American Samoa (Say No to Violence) and the CNV throughout the world.
