Music has the ability to bring people together regardless of all differences to create a collective interaction that can connect all together as one.

The Peace Jam, brings together the talents and contributions of artists to grow peace awareness and positivity, through a celebration of the beauty of harmony.  In 2016, the Branch of Peace Foundation worked in partnership with government officials in the city of Charleston South Carolina through various efforts to have the city officially observe the International Day of Peace for the first time.

As a result of these efforts, on International Peace Day 9.21.16 Mayor John Tecklenburg signed an Official Proclamation recognizing the International Day of Peace as a “Day of Peace” in the City.

In recognition of the achievement, the Branch of Peace Foundation sponsored our first peace is a verb musical entertainment production: The Peace Jam – Concert for Peace at the Music Farm in Charleston.

The Peace Jam was so successful, that in celebration of International Peace Day 2017 the Branch of Peace Foundation sponsored an encore performance with new talent and some familiar faces.

Thank you to all of the artists that shared their talents for the cause of peace in the Charleston community on these days and every day.

If you are an artist, work for a musical venue, or would like to support bringing The Peace Jam to your community, contact the Branch of Peace Foundation for more information.
