6th Annual International Day of Peace

A note from the planning committee:
Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on September 21. The United Nations General Assembly has declared that this day be devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.
We celebrate the International Day of Peace on the Boston Common because we believe that peace is still alive, it is love and it conquers all. We do this because there is too much violence in the world.
Our hope is that this event will put peace on many minds for many days to come. We aim to also highlight the complexities of violence that need addressing in our own community. We hope to spread peace through sharing, by example, and by performing random acts of kindness.
