2018 PEACE WEEK in Broward County, Florida, Sept. 17-21 

Choose Peace/Stop Violence announces the 9th 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 and Children’s Services Council of Broward County. 

A peaceful society is one where there is justice and equality for everyone and we have adopted this year’s United Nations theme “The Right to Peace” Human rights are everyone's rights, to kick off our 2018-19 campaign. We are asking students to support the theme by seeking peaceful resolution of conflict when disagreements arise around them.  To be part of the solution by taking small steps. To prevent an injustice at school or in their community by adopting a non-violent approach to problem solving and reporting potential crimes, including online bullying.
