UN International Day of Families 2010

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 2010 observance was "The Impact of Migration on Families." For a PowerPoint overview of UPF observances, click here.
