The United Nations established Peace Day in 1981. This year’s theme is “Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All”. The theme is based on the Together global campaign that promotes respect, safety and dignity for everyone forced to flee their homes in search of a better life. For more info, see UN Peace Day
For our celebration at Patapsco, we’ll explore through queries how our family experiences impact the way we look at the current refugee/immigration situation.
We invite you to share a story from your family history and an object that relates to the story. Our celebration falls on Potluck Sunday so we also encourage you to bring a dish from your family traditions
