The International Day of Peace was observed around the world each year on September 21st. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace. 2021 GLOBAL PEACE DAY THEME: “Shaping PeaceTogether” is to Celebrate the day by spreading compassion, kindness and hope in the face of the pandemic. Stand together with the UN against attempts to use the virus to promotediscrimination or hatred. Join us so that we can shape peace together.

Stand in Peace has been in existence for over 20 years. Stand in Peace International was founded to help people, places and spaces where
historical, generational, community and individual trauma have taken place and is dedicated to transforming pain into power through the arts, health promotion, cultural connectedness, and building community.

The community celebration, hosted by Stand in Peace International is co-sponsored by San Francisco Foundation and Hope SF. The event will provide a time to reflect on the ongoing violence that plagues our society and stifles progress.
