UN International Day of Families 2014


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. For 2014, the UN chose the theme "Families Matter for the Achievement of Development Goals" and noted that 2014 is the 20th anniversary of the International Year of the Family.
