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.
Will you join us on December 15th, 2023 for the next 24 hour #fastforpeace?

September’s #fastforpeace Charity
Each month, participants in the fast for peace are encouraged to donate the money they saved on food to help others, and nominate charities or causes during the post-fast survey. For September, Prison Radio has been selected as the #fastforpeace charity.
For three decades, they have been an independent media company, challenging unjust police and prosecutorial practices which result in mass incarceration. Like Gandhi, they promote the intrinsic human worth in each and every one of us. You can learn more about their work, and make a donation, on their website at: prisonradio.org
“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
