Globalfamily Day, taking place annually on the 1st of January, is a celebration of global citizenship and cooperation to solve global problems.
Before this, Globalfamily Day has twice received the unanimous support of the US Congress (S. Con. Res. 138, S, Res. 582, H. Con. Res. 317), the UN General Assembly (Resolutions 54/29 and 56/2)
Specifically, this Senate request is as follows:
- the people of the United States to observe Global Family Day and One Day of Peace and Sharing with appropriate activities stressing the need--
- to eradicate violence, hunger, poverty, and suffering; and
- to establish greater trust and fellowship among peace-loving countries and families everywhere; and
- American businesses, labor organizations, and faith and civic leaders to join in promoting appropriate activities for Americans and in extending appropriate greetings from the families of the United States to families in the rest of the world.
GlobalSolutions.org echoes the Senate's request, and congratulates Linda Grover on her fantastic work in getting further Senate recognition of Globalfamily Day.
