On March 24th, join prominent community leaders, government officials, educators, activists, musicians and other citizens in honoring a commitment to a stress-free, violence-free society.

Featuring special keynote address by world renowned humanitarian Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and an opening act by a local Bay Area band. Other speakers include Dr James Doty the President of Stanford University's CCARE.

Stand with thousands of others to create a stress-free violence-free community.

Sandy Hook. Aurora. Violence is all around us. The daily bullying in schools across our communities. Domestic violence and abuse. An economic downturn that has left thousands feeling helpless and alone. All this has brought up a dire need for the voice of non-violence to become stronger than ever and for us to work harder to remove stress from our environment and build safer, stronger, peaceful neighborhoods.

We believe that we have the power to eliminate the sense of loss and fear when we come together.

The Campaign brings together citizens, non profits, universities, schools, corporations, and the government to engage in compassionate action and stand together as a collective force of change.

We believe peace & change begin one person at a time. You and I can create peace.
