As we celebrate this year’s International Day of Peace 2022, The UN General Assembly calls on the world over to embrace and strengthen the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire.
“Racism continues to poison institutions, social structures, and everyday life in every society. It continues to be a driver of persistent inequality. And it continues to deny people their fundamental human rights. It destabilizes societies, undermines democracies, erodes the legitimacy of governments, and… the linkages between racism and gender inequality are unmistakable.”– Secretary-General António Guterres, UN Secretary-General
