Why 40 Acts of PEACE ?

In order to provide greater focus to the 40 Days of PEACE, you will receive daily Acts of PEACE so that you have an opportunity to do something different each day during the 40 days. Your commitment to taking on the challenge of the 40 Acts of PEACE during this period will enable you to do your part in creating YOUR community of peace and expand relational horizons.

Neighborhood Peacemaker Award
Promoting Communities of Peace
Do you know a family member, friend or neighbor who helps to improve your community? Maybe they have worked to bring different groups of people together, helped to keep your neighborhood safe or provided a service that you feel deserves recognition. Now you can honor them with a nomination for the Neighborhood Peacemaker Award.


For 40 days, beginning with the Martin Luther King Holiday in 2008, national and local partners, individuals, families, communities, schools, communities of faith, community organizations and many others will focus on helping to start building a peaceful community. The 40 days represents the 40th Anniversary of Dr. King’s death and the start of allowing people to learn over 40 days, anyone can begin to build a more peaceful community. Make a difference in your own life and in the lives of others by acting peacefully during this period.  Help us reach our goal of 250,000 joining in our 40 days of PEACE by sending this to others you know and pledging.
