Peace Day 2018What does peace mean to you? Each year, UofL's Peace, Justice & Conflict Transformation certificate program sponsors events to commemorate the United Nations International Day of Peace. This is our 8th annual celebration of PeaceDay. This year's activities have been planned by the new student organization, Student Advocates for Peace and Justice, with a focus on the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the U.N. Sustainable Development goals. Schedule:

  • 11am-2pm Eco-Justice & Peace Fair (Humanities Quad): Local and campus organizations will host booths sharing how you can get involved in advancing these goals.
  • 2:30-3:45pm Psychology of Peace & Ethnic Relations Craft Fair (Humanities Quad): Students in PSYCH 430 – Psychology of Peace & Ethnic Relations will offer a variety of activity stations, including: an Affirmation table, Peace Rocks, a Tree of Life, Organize & simplify your backpack, a 30 Second Pause, and a Peace of Pizza.
  • 7pm Screening of "Eleanor: In Her Own Words" (Red Barn): The 70th anniversary of the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights will be honored with a screening of Eleanor: In Her Own Words. UofL Theater Professor, Russ Vandenbroucke's adaptation of the writings of Eleanor Roosevelt was broadcast years ago as part of the American Playhouse series on PBS. Lee Remick portrays Roosevelt whose role in passage of the Universal Declaration led to her nickname, "First Lady of the World." Panel discussion to follow.
