URI at the UN Hosts Flag Ceremony for International Day of Peace.

16 September 2017
Cards with countries names on them

Sep 16, 2017. This event was held to open our last day of the Global Staff and Trustee meeting. It happened six hours before the UN observed the International Day of Peace at UN Headquarters. (It was held on Sept 15 to allow public access to the UN, which closes to visitors during the General Assembly meetings with Heads of State.) Most of the participants were returning to their homes for local IDP events. It was a joy to share this special day with so many who have been involved with the International Day of Peace for many years.
