International Day of Peace 2022:

"End Racism, Build Peace" 
Wednesday Sept. 21 - Thursday Sep. 22 

Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on Sept. 21. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of nonviolence and cease-fire. #IDP2022

 The Center for Global Engagement invites you to join the efforts of the United Nations family as we focus on recovering better for a more equitable and peaceful world. Celebrate peace by standing up against acts of hate online and offline, and by spreading compassion, kindness and hope in the face of the pandemic, and as we recover.
