Celebrate United Nations Day
On October 24, 1945, the United Nations was formed to promote peace and international security, further economic and social development and protect fundamental human dignity. Established by Presidential Proclamation, United Nations Day recognizes the establishment of this important organization and underscores a worldwide dedication to identify common problems, set international standards, and take action.
