International Day of Peace

The International Day of Peace is a United Nations International Day, declared and devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire. The 2022 theme for the day is “End Racism. Build Peace.”

According to Secretary-General António Guterres:

“Racism continues to poison institutions, social structures, and everyday life in every society. It continues to be a driver of persistent inequality. And it continues to deny people their fundamental human rights. It destabilizes societies, undermines democracies, erodes the legitimacy of governments, and… the linkages between racism and gender inequality are unmistakable.”
