What is This  Nationwide TEN PERCENT Youth Violence Prevention Challenge?

The purpose of this 
Campaign is to challenge all youth ages 10 to 24 to voluntarily reduce all violence in the U.S. TEN PERCENT this year and every subsequent year. This Challenge provides an important, UNITED, and crystal-clear message to our youth that Unjustified Violence Against Other People Is NOT ACCEPTABLE In America.” It is an effort which all youth can participate in, and all will benefit from. Recognition of this Challenge is completely free and requires no legislation and no funding. It is educational only and 100 percent rooted in volunteerism. It is not political, financial, religious, or judgmental. This Challenge helped UNITE leaders in Kentucky on this important issue and we hope it can UNITE leaders in the U.S.A. too. Because many adults are sending this message we say its “Adults using their greatest power, our ability to influence our youth, to its greatest use” in the hope that “The more united our peaceful message is, the more powerful it will be, and the more positive results we’ll see in America’s youth”.  www.AMoralChallenge.us

Recognition Language


Violence in the United States remains at an unacceptably high level. It negatively affects everyone in our great county regardless of their position or beliefs. Violence reduces the quality of life for victims of violence. Violence interferes with a student’s education and interferes with an educator’s ability to teach. Violence creates unnecessary costs to individuals, families, businesses, towns, municipalities, cities, states, and our great country. Violence disproportionably negatively impacts youth and minorities. All the people in the U.S. will in some way benefit from a voluntary TEN PERCENT reduction in all violence in 2014 and every subsequent year. It will most especially benefit America’s children. We recognize Win The War! Against Violence - The 2014 TEN PERCENT Challenge America’s National Youth Violence Prevention Challenge “A Moral Challenge” as a worthy effort and strongly encourage all youth to voluntarily and substantially reduce all forms of unjustified violence in their lives not only for the benefit our great country but for their own benefit too.

Why Join this 2014 Nationwide TEN PERCENT Youth Violence Prevention Challenge?


It's Free. It exposes the still too high level of violence in the United States of America. It asks and Challenges all in the U.S.A. to do "No Violence" and reduce "Shadow Violence" (accidental injuries) in 2014 and every subsequent year. Everything about this Challenge is 100 Percent Voluntary. This Campaign is Educational only and about Violence Reduction only and Violence Prevention Education has been proven to help. It is not Political, Financial, Religious or Judgmental in nature but does not conflict with any of those belief. Every one in America is equal in this Challenge no matter what their status or position is. A reduction of violence will result in cost savings to local, state and federal government agencies, businesses and individuals. It requires zero legislation and zero governmental funding on any level. Less violence will allow for faster advancement in other important areas like medicine and poverty. Less violence will improve the quality of life for all Americans and help reduce the pain and suffering, substance abuse problems and mental health problems. Not doing violence gives you more independence and more control of your life. No one in the U.S. is safe from violence. This Challenge is only about real violence and not fake or simulated violence. Violence creates unnecessary costs to individuals, families, businesses, towns municipalities, cities and states within the U.S. It disproportionately impacts youth, especially minorities. This Challenge reaffirms everyone's Natural or God Given Right to live in Peace. This is a call to non-action. You do not have to do anything for this Campaign, except stop yourself when you want to, or are about to, do violence to yourself or others. And no violence and fun equals "Super Fun"! All of the 313 million people in the U.S. would benefit from a TEN PERCENT reduction in violence in 2014 and every subsequent year thereafter; especially the 77 million children (ages 0-17) which is 25 percent of America’s population. But the best reason for supporting this Challenge is our individual and collective survival!
