In 2007, House Bill 345 was voted into law as Act 23, declaring September 21st of each year shall be known and recognized as “Peace Day” to promote peace programs, improve international relations, and increase educational awareness of peace.”
Hawaii thus became the first state in the United States to join more than 200 countries in celebrating the United Nations International Day of Peace and Non-Violence. Since then, each year, volunteers from community groups, professional organizations, educational institutions, artists, musicians and government service representatives unite to show solidarity towards attaining peace throughout our lives and the world on this and everyday. (See “Peace One Day” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykb5t8kviUw) This year, Peace Day Hawai`i will be held on the beautiful grounds of the Urban Garden Center (UGC) in Pearl City, O’ahu.
