2015 Media Violence Fast | #PeaceDay

The Pacific University Center for Peace and Spirituality, in partnership with the United Church of Christ Office of Communication, invites you to fast from media violence from September 15-21, 2015 to honor the International Day of Prayers for Peace, September 21, 2015.

Media Violence Fast Pledge

  • I pledge to avoid all violent television programs, movies, and video games from September 15-21, 2015.
  • I pledge to dedicate myself to peace during this time.
  • I pledge to share my fast with my family and friends and encourage them to participate also.

Did You Know?

  • Our children will see an estimated 100,000 acts of violence on television in the next 10 years.
  • There is a stronger connection between violence on television and aggressive behavior than the connection between lead exposure and lower IQs in children.
  • Children spend more time (6 1/2 hours per day) in front of computer, television and game screens than any other activity except sleeping.

Take The Pledge.
