Student Fast For Nonviolence

The link below highlights of the first week of the San Leandro Academy for Multi-Media's (SLAM) Fast for Non-Violence.  Students learn multi-media skills while engaging their campus in a month long anti-violence campaign.  This is the third year of this project.  Students produce anti-violence media, share campus-wide messages over the school announcements, and fast one day for non-violence and peace. 


The videos can be viewed with an updated version of Quicktime, and a little patience.  Sometimes it takes awhile for the videos to download. 


Here is a link to the Fast For Nonviolence:


The Fast for Nonviolence is the cornerstone project of the Season of Service, Period of Peace at San Leandro High School which runs from King Day to Chavez Day. Over the three years of the project, anti-violence and peace-themed service-learning projects have taken place in nearly every content area on campus.  The Season of Service, Period of Peace started with 24 students in the SLAM Academy 3 years ago and now engages over 1000 students on the campus of 3000.


If you have any questions about this project, please contact Evan Goldberg- we’d love to see this model expand across the nation!
