Joining together, people of all ages, from every walk of life and background, have the potential to change the world for the better!
Action in our schools and communities:
- Violence Prevention. When potentially violent conflict arises — in school or in the community where we live — we will encourage discussion and collaboration to find peaceful solutions that respect the views and the dignity of everyone involved.
- Education. We will organize assemblies, classes, clubs, town halls, and other activities to educate ourselves, our families and friends, and our entire communities about issues of violence, war, and peace.
- Peace Day. We will organize an annual peace day — a day in which we gather to discuss issues of violence, war, and peace. Through mutual respect and understanding, we can find solutions to the problems that face our communities, the nation, and the world.
Participation in the political world:
- Peace pledge signatures. We will sign the Youth Peace Pledge and ask others we know to sign also. We will contact political candidates and current office holders, and request that they sign the Peace Legislators Pledge. Both pledges are located on this website.
- Peace Campaigns. We will support the campaigns of candidates who have signed the peace pledge. These candidates have committed themselves to advocating on behalf of peace. Let’s work with them to advance this cause.
- Voting. We will do everything we can — from registering voters to bringing out the vote on election day — to encourage everyone who can vote to actually do so. Please note: A citizen must be 18 years old on the day of the election to be eligible to vote. However, those who are 17 years old may register and vote in primary elections if they will turn 18 before the next general election in November 2018.
