United Nations Day
Every year the Boulder County Chapter celebrates the anniversary of the entry into force of the United Nations Charter on October 24, 1945. This momentous event is celebrated world-wide with meetings, discussions and exhibits on the achievements and goals of the United Nations. In Boulder County the commemoration is a gathering of county NGOs working on international issues; organizations are invited to display information about their work.
We celebrated UN Day this year on Sunday afternoon, October 30th, 2016, from 2pm to 4pm, in Plymouth Hall at First Congregational Church, 1128 Pine St, Boulder.
This FREE PUBLIC meeting featured a panel discussion followed by a birthday reception.
Our theme was One Humanity Moving Forward: The Refugee Crisis and the Adopt-A-Future Campaign. Panelists included refugees living in Colorado, and public and private support partners.
Adopt-A-Future is a three-year campaign of the United Nations Foundation to raise funds for schools in refugee camps and provide school materials for local refugee children.
