From Sandy Westin, via Anne Roth: 11 Days of Global Unity

URI North America Dear URI Family – 

As summer rapidly winds down to merge into autumn, the beginning of 11 Days of Global Unity is now only six weeks away. If you haven’t yet taken the opportunity to have your organization become a visible part of this global campaign, now is the time to do so.

The North America region of United Religions Initiative joined with We, the World earlier  this year to bring URI into this year’s campaign, not only from  throughout the US and Canada, but around the world.   In this year which recognizes the 10th anniversary of the tragedy of 9/11/01, and the 30th anniversary of the International Day of Peace on 9/21, it only seems appropriate that in 2011 we collectively demonstrate the scope and breadth of the extensive work being done to make our world better for coming generations.

Fifty-three partners have registered so far in the 11 Days Campaign from around the world with dozens of events added to the Global Unity Calendar honoring one or more of the following 11 themes of the campaign.




Economic Justice


Children and Youth


Human Rights



The International Day of Peace

  If your organization is planning a program or event between now and the end of September  related to any of these themes, whether or not it is officially a part of URI, please take a moment to register your organization on the 11 Days website and add your event to the Global Unity Calendar at the same time. Help us make URI a strong and visible part of this global movement to demonstrate the scope and breadth of initiatives working to improve our world for future generations. Now is the time to join in.

Thank you, and a blessed Ramadan to all!

Sandy Westin, Regional Coordinator, United Religions Initiative in North America
