Multifaith Voices for Peace & Justice Holds Many Actions!

Posted by Ryan Hall

Multifaith Voices for Peace & Justice marked Campaign Nonviolence Week of Action with an eclectic assortment of actions.

· Campaign Nonviolence banners were displayed in front of several congregations and across the overpass of one of the main entrances to downtown Palo Alto.  (See photos.)

· Working with Peninsula Interfaith Climate Action, we helped produce a program on Climate Justice for our local Community Media Center with immediate response and reflection on the Pope’s congressional address.  You can watch it at: https://youtu.be/wKLpmK1JYMY

· The documentary “White Like Me” was shown at a community forum and provoked good discussion on race and privilege.

· Nurturing inner peace and commitment, we hosted a Labyrinth Peace Walk.  (See photo.)

· Joining with our local Friends Meeting, we supported a Harvest Festival with family fun and a chance to raise money for the California Friends Committee on Legislation.

· With the Pacific Life Community, we co-sponsored a Peace Vigil protesting nuclear weapons in front of Lockheed Martin – the largest manufacturer and exporter of military weapons, and the San Jose Catholic Diocese’s Evening of Prayer for Victims of Violence.

· On a global level, we encouraged participation and support of the U.N. International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons (Sept. 26), the Afghan Peace Volunteers’ #Enough campaign, the Nonviolent Peaceforce’s effort urging the President to promote unarmed civilian protection as part of the U.N. Peace Operations, and of course, the signing of the Campaign Nonviolence Pledge.
