Week of Peace Hope Justice

Peace Hope Justice

Pepperdine Volunteer Center and Intercultural Affairs present Peace, Hope, and Justice Week. During this week, our community will engage the topics of social justice and equity. Students are invited to learn and serve through lectures, movies, performances, and worship that promote community, equity, and social change, all leading toward the reconciliation of God's people and creation.

Schedule of Events

Pepperdine students can begin the week during the National Day of Service, honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s legacy of hope and reconciliation.

Beginning on Tuesday, students can participate in the following ongoing programs:

  • Nailing their prayers for peace to a cross, honoring the Prince of Peace.
  • Sharing prayers through social media using #pepperdineprays
  • Placing your handprint on the Rock
  • Creating your own art piece dedicated to the week
