International Day of Peace was started by the United Nations in 1981 to observe global non-violence and ceasefire.The General Assembly declared September 21 as a day devoted to “strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.”
The UN’s theme for 2017 peace day will focus on the plight of immigrants and migrants, especially those who have been displaced by war, which includes 10.1 million people from Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan.
CCPM’s commemoration will focus on “hate has no home here” with guest speakers and musical performances. Join us as we come together to celebrate our common humanity!
