THE VIGIL FOR INTERNATIONAL PEACE AND ECOLOGY
is a grassroots transformational effort dedicated to promulgate peace
through participation in art, song, dance, music, prayer, and ecological awareness.
The purpose of the VIGIL is to awaken humanity to harmony and peace through the power of intent and celebration. Our vision is to heal and bridge our lives and communities in order to achieve divinity alignment and recognize the oneness in all.
In its 11th year, the VIGIL was inspired by the United Nations' 2001 Resolution 55/282 designating September 21st of each year as an "International Day of Peace", and to have the entire world observe a full day of "global ceasefire and nonviolence."
We are advocating an ”International Day of Peace Vigil” with the following objective: To encourage the observation of a worldwide, 24-hour Vigil for Peace and nonviolence and ceasefire on the International Day of Peace, 21 September of each year, in every house and place of spiritual practice, by all religious and spiritually based groups and individuals and by all men, women and children who seek peace in the world.” All Peoples and Organizations are invited to commemorate the day in an appropriate manner.
