In 1981 the United Nations instituted the International Day of Peace. They proclaimed that each September 21 all people should take 24 hours and cease all forms of violence. If we can do it on one day we can do it everyday. Since 2001 there has been an observance in Pittsburgh. We encourage individuals and groups to plan and participate in activities that raise our consciousness to work to end violence not just for a day but everyday . This year we invite persons to participate in these activities from September 15-21.
