Inside Peace Sunday 2019
Peace Sunday, UDC’s annual event that honors the United Nations International Day of Peace, was held on September 22 at the IMAN Center in Los Angeles.
This year’s theme was “The Challenge to Democracy: Upholding Faith, Justice, and Dignity.”
The day featured an Interfaith Service, a Persian Lunch, the Main Program which consisted of Music, Multimedia Presentations, Panel, and a Q & A, with leaders in a variety of fields addressing the multiplicity of issues that challenge democracy.

Peace Sunday first began in 1982 and was produced by “The Year of Shalom Committees” as a protest against the arms race in support of the Nuclear Freeze Movement. It was a huge event at the Rose Bowl. UDC founder, Rev. Leland Stewart was on the Year of Shalom Committee and later received the rights to the name. We have continued the legacy since then with different themes every year in various locations.
