• Celebrate World Justice Day, February 20

    “With exclusion and inequality on the rise, we must step up efforts to ensure that all people, without discrimination, are able to access opportunities to improve their lives and those of others.”

    Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

    With all of the political intensity going on in the U.S., it can be easy for some of us to lose sight of larger world events and initiatives.  At the same time, the events of the past few weeks have reminded Americans of our links to the world, especially our human connections to the diverse people from around the world who live, work, study, and contribute in the United States. This includes our neighbors, co-workers, friends, and family members.
    Please take a moment to consider your role as a world citizen in connection with the United Nations “World Justice Day” on February 20.  Learn more about the UN’s efforts to “build inclusive societies, promote decent work, bolster social protection floors, and bring people in from the margins” here.
