We would especially like to acknowledge and thank the Peace Day Philly team for inspiring us to create this site and for the many references and support materials related to Peace Day that we were also able to use on our site.  Thank you City of Brotherly Love.

WHAT YOU
CAN DO

"The fruit of silence is prayer; the fruit of prayer is faith; the fruit of faith is love; the fruit of love is service; the fruit of service is peace."
 
— Mother Teresa

 

SERVICE and HUMANITARIAN ACTION

 

This is about humanity —– we are living things; we depend on each other. And that’s how we are going to build a global community where we care for each other and make this world a better place.

                                              — Former Child Soldier and Rapper Emmanuel Jal

 

Peace Day provides individuals with an opportunity to build peace and a sense of our common humanity through volunteering and service as well as learning about humanitarian and environmental issues affecting communities close to home and across the world.

 

FEATURED VIDEO FROM PEACE DAY PHILLY

Farah Siraj’s song “What If” encourages us to be mindful of those who live in contexts of war and conflict – whether across our city or across the world. Deepening our compassion and awareness of others is a cornerstone of building peace.
