Theme for 2020 United Nations International Day of Peace:

Shaping Peace Together

We have planned and organized the Boston area celebration of the United Nations International Day of Peace each year since 2010. This year's theme is Shaping Peace Together during this time with pandemics of Racial Injustice, Violence, and COVID-19. The Reverend Rodney Dailey (New Bethel AME Church, Lowell MA) will once again serve as emcee. The planned program is below, followed by information about the people who will be speaking or performing, links to programs and videos of our previous events, and then a list of our sponsors. We hope you will join us and enjoy the program.
