It’s an opportunity to affirm that peace matters, and that there are alternatives to the violence we see in the news every day.
It’s a moment to celebrate those who are working for peace in our communities and in our world.
And it’s a day to stand up and be counted!
This year, join the U.S. Institute of Peace as we mark our 30th anniversary year with the Peace Day Challenge!
Take one peacebuilding action in the course of your day.
Organize an event or take another collective action to mark the day.
Encourage your students to take action around an important issue in their school, community, or world.
