Songs for World Peace is hosting a virtual Peace Day Panel Discussion (Sept. 21) with a theme of “Social Action through Music.”
These days are an opportunity to learn about peace and justice, to educate others, to raise awareness about real issues, to advocate, to work for real change, or support those who are working for it.
Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. This year’s theme draws attention to the importance of combatting climate change. As peace educators, today serves as an opportunity and reminder for integrating peace into our curricula.
On this International Day of Peace, community colleges should take stock of the important work they do to foster a world that is peaceful and prosperous. As we become even more diverse as a country, community colleges will be critical to making America a land of equal opportunity and peace.
