I am happy to see that the protests against racism and police brutality have elevated Juneteenth (June 19th celebrating the end of slavery in the U.S.) to the point where legislation is being introduced to make it an official federal holiday.
Racism, inequality, other major challenges and how we can address them together are being discussed during the extraordinary June programs of We, The World and our Allies such as World Unity Week, International Children’s Month, The Compassion Course, the Poor People’s Campaign Moral March On Washington, Philo Music Therapy Webinar and many others (see below). We hope you will join us!

Global Organizations Converge to Declare World UNITY Week
Over one hundred civil society global organizations and initiatives, as well as visionary thought leaders, have come together in an unprecedented alliance to declare World UNITY Week from June 20-27, 2020. Beginning on the mid-year solstice June 20 with an Indigenous-led day of prayer, following a global series of free online events, World UNITY Week concludes on June 27th with a celebration of the 75th anniversary of the signing of the UN Charter.
World UNITY Week is an online global Convergence, a series of interactive events that are intergenerational, cross-cultural, interdisciplinary, and international. Global organizations that have come together to declare World UNITY Week as a matter of urgency include the Parliament of the World Religions, the United Religions Initiative, Pachamama Alliance, UNITY EARTH, UNEP Faiths for Earth Initiative, EcoPeace Middle East, Four Worlds International, WholeWorld-View, Unify, UPLIFT, The Shift Network, International Children’s Month and We, The World.
World UNITY Week is an open invitation for the global community to join in the monthly celebration of “The Global Days of Unity”, leading towards the 11 Days of Global Unity September 11-21 culminating in a large-scale global celebration across Peace Weekend 2020 (September 19-21), centered on the annual U.N. International Day of Peace (September 21). To learn more:

The twin pandemics of COVID-19 and racism, inflaming communities across the US and globally, have made it clear that our collective wellbeing depends on the wellbeing of each and every member of our society. That is the essence of a WE-based culture. WE can no longer afford to live in a ME-based society where people’s actions don’t consider the consequences for others.
offer a platform and collective action steps for societal transformation – a Highlight of the Caravan of Unity & Peace Weekend in September 2020. We invite you to join these discussions during World Unity Week!
