Media Violence Fast

Thank you for making a commitment to peace---

The 2013 media violence fast is now over.

Stay tuned for the 2014 media violence fast

September 15-21, 2014

If you are interested in next year's fast, please sign up below.  In the meantime, you can use these resources.


Our children will see an estimated 100,000 acts of violence on television in the next 10 years.

There is a stronger connection between violence on television and aggressive behavior than the connection between lead exposure and lower IQs in children.

Children spend more time (6 1/2 hours per day) in front of computer, television and game screens than any other activity except sleeping.

Media Violence Fast Pledge

  • I pledge to avoid all violent television programs, movies, and video games from September 15-21, 2014. 

  • I pledge to dedicate myself to peace during this time.

  • I pledge to share my fast with my family and friends and encourage them to participate also.
