Monica Willard, NGO Representative of the United Religions Initiative (URI), invites you to co-create a global wave of peace prayers to embrace the planet. Ask your place of worship to observe the International Day of Peace, contact your religious leaders, add Peace Day information to bulletins and church signs, and encourage planting Peace Poles or trees. Monica is a graduate of Notre Dame High School, Belmont, CA, and we are proud of our connection with her through her United Nations work for harmony and peace. firstname.lastname@example.org
The International Day of Peace, observed annually around the world on September 21,
will focus this year on Education for Peace.
