URI North America #IDP Sept. 21: "Most of the world’s ‘peace work’ is unreported however– in the countless NGOs working to address the underlying causes of conflict, in communities working at every scale to create more resilient peaceful lives. All are invited to participate some way in this year’s International Day of #Peace.... if you feel compelled to join an event, gather in a peaceful vigil, or roll up your sleeves and commit to peace work, we encourage you. It may not be reported on the evening news, but you are making history, or more importantly, building our future." #PeaceDay
