Fast for Peace is a project that promotes Gandhi’s messages of truth and nonviolence, tolerance, and voluntary temperance.
The 15th of every month is a #fastforpeace day. Members and non-members alike are invited to participate.
Gandhi inspired millions by demonstrating truth and nonviolence as facets of self-control.
He fasted at the risk of his own life and saved countless others.

November’s #fastforpeace Charity
Each month, participants in the fast for peace are encouraged to donate the money they saved on food to help others. Gandhi wrote in his autobiography that “facts mean truth, and once we adhere to truth, the law comes to our aid naturally.” Sometimes the truth needs a little help; this month, Forward Justice was selected as the #fastforpeace charity.
Based in Durham, North Carolina, Forward Justice is a nonpartisan law, policy, and strategy center dedicated to advancing racial, social, and economic justice in the US South. In 2019, Forward Justice helped exonerate Dontae Sharpe, who had been wrongly imprisoned for a quarter century. This month, more than two years after his release, North Carolina’s Governor finally granted a pardon of innocence for him.

“Fasting is regarded by all religions as a great discipline. Those who voluntarily fast become gentle and purified by it. A pure fast is a very powerful prayer. It is no small thing for [hundreds of thousands] of people to voluntarily abstain from food… It ennobles individuals and nations” ~ Mohandas Gandhi
