Peace Day Philly encourages, collaborates on and offers diverse peace-related programs across the Philadelphia region and beyond in observance of the United Nations International Day of Peace, September 21.
Programs and activities (15-35+ annually) relate to peace on personal, local and global levels, and take place during the week in which Peace Day falls. The “What Can You Do?” section of our website offers many ideas for engaging in Peace Day related to children and youth, the environment, community, nonviolence, sports and the arts. Peace Day
Philly has earned the support of Philadelphia’s Mayor and Police Department, as well as the Pennsylvania State Senate.
