UN International Day of Families 2012

The UN International Day of Families is celebrated each May at the United Nations headquarters and around the world. The Universal Peace Federation joins in commemorating this day because it considers the family as a microcosm of the global community and because sustainable peace is grounded in the family as the most intimate social unit, the school of love. The theme of the 2012 observance was "Ensuring Work Family Balance." For a PowerPoint overview of UPF observances, click here.
