Established in 1981 by the United Nations, the International Day of Peace is celebrated every September 21st. The day calls for a 24-hour period of nonviolence, in order to reimagine ways to create a more peaceful world. This year’s theme, “Recovering better for an equitable and sustainable world,” addresses the crises brought upon by the pandemic, which makes worldwide observance more critical than ever. In American cities alone, homicides increased 25 percent as the pandemic swept across the country—the largest single-year increase in homicides since tracking began in 1960.

In recognition of the International Day of Peace, Scientology Network is proud to present a very special marathon. All day long, films and shows will air that feature individuals and organizations working around the world to bring peace by bolstering education and human rights awareness.

The day’s programming (beginning 8 a.m. ET) includes:

-Voices for Humanity, the only ongoing television series dedicated to those working in the streets, schools and communities to bring human rights to their countries and handle other major social ills;

-PSAs to raise awareness of human rights; and

-The Way to Happiness film, the internationally acclaimed common sense guide to better living that millions have used to improve their lives and communities around the world.
