Who's fasting



The fast for peace is group fast on the 15th of each month. It's water only, and can be any 24 hours; dinner-to-dinner fasts are a common way to participate. This commemorates Gandhi's fasts for peace in India that saved countless lives.

A 24-hour fast has many mental and physical benefits, but the idea is feared by many because it is unknown. This monthly event helps encourage people to try their first fast; it's less scary when other people are doing it too, plus it's for a cause.

Will you fast for peace with us? In March, we had pledges from 18 states and 7 countries.

If you join in each month, you're also invited to keep and share your score as a fraction: 15/1, 15/2, 15/3, etc, where the denominator is the number of times you've fasted on the 15th. Peace is a long term commitment, not a quick fix. #fastforpeace
