Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the two historic 1982 Nuclear Freeze events:
PEACE SUNDAY at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA and the ONE MILLION RALLY in NYC.
Join us online for these Powerful Gatherings of Indigenous Grandmothers, Elders, Interfaith Leaders, Sacred Activists, Artists, Drummers & Singers… ALL joining us in Oneness for World Unity and Peace. Let’s all work together towards a world free of wars, nuclear weapons and nuclear waste.
These ongoing Candlelight Vigils & Celebrations of Life are being held to honor our Creator, our Mother Earth, and our Ancestors who have passed away due to senseless wars, attacks, climate disasters, pandemics, human trafficking, MMIW, and life in general. We are also honoring the Living and Future Generations. ALL are Sacred in this beautiful, miraculous Web of Life! Join our One Global Family Alliances.
The first Peace Sunday held in 1982, was a massive, star-studded event held at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. Attended by 100,000 people opposing the nuclear arms race and in support of a nuclear freeze. On June 12th, 1982, a week after Peace Sunday, over one million people marched and demonstrated from the United Nations to New York City’s Central Park, demanding nuclear disarmament and an end to the Cold War arms race, making it the largest disarmament rally in American history.
The Unity and Diversity World Council (UDWC) was part of the original organizing committee for Peace Sunday. UDWC has served as the convening organization since then, carrying on the legacy of Peace Sunday in the spirit of building a sustainable future of peace on Earth. UDWC has continued to produce annual Peace Sunday events in the Los Angeles area, focusing on themes pertaining to the well-being of our global family and all life on our planet.
Since 2020, after the pandemic lockdowns were implemented, UDWC and its Affiliates: One Global Family Alliances and the Jerusalem Prayer Project created a webumentary called “PEACE SUNDAY 2020: We Carry The Dream.” In 2021, the same Affiliates began organizing an online “SACRED ACTIVISM: Peace Sundays Revolution” broadcast series.
