Choose Peace Week
About the Event
Choose Peace/Stop Violence announces its 11th Annual Choose Peace Week celebration! Since 2010, the initiative has worked with partners, communities and youth to address the terrible reality of youth violence. The initiative is a collaborative effort led by the United Way of Broward County, the School Board of Broward County, Children’s Services Council of Broward County and the Law Enforcement Trust Fund.
We adopted the 2020 United Nations (UN) theme: "Shaping Peace Together” to kick off our 2020-2021 campaign. The theme draws attention to spreading compassion, kindness and hope in the face of the pandemic and a call for action to continue to live in harmony with our environment. We will stand together with the UN against attempts to use the virus to promote discrimination or hatred. Join us in shaping peace together!
This Activity Guide provides an array of activities - focused on promoting peace, unity and inclusion - that students and community members can safely engage in during this time of the pandemic. This year we are elated to announce that we will have a total of THREE contests for youth to participate in!
BE CREATIVE! HAVE FUN! SPREAD PEACE!
