TAKE ACTION FOR EQUALITY
Taking action for justice and equality is everyone’s responsibility.
Participate in Peace Days and be part of the movement!
Each of our individual and collective actions has a direct impact on our social fabric and our shared living environments. Our actions can help build a just, egalitarian, inclusive, non-violent and harmonious society.
Be a champion of equality!

Peace Days Ambassadors
Stay tuned for news from Peace Days; our Ambassadors for the upcoming 7th edition will be unveiled this summer!
In 2020, we had these six tremendous individuals acting as our Ambassadors: Television host and sports commentator Kevin Raphael; documentary filmmaker, journalist, and civil and human rights activist Will Prosper; illustrator Catherine D’Amours; author and television host Kim Thúy; and Eli Batalion and Jamie Elman, co-creators of the YidLife Crisis web series.
In 1981, the United Nations declared September 21st to be the International Day of Peace (IDP). IDP provides an opportunity to highlight and encourage the development of activities aimed at creating a kinder, more peaceful and more harmonious society.
Since 2015, the Peace Network for Social Harmony has had the pleasure of coordinating Montreal’s Peace Days celebrations, with activities taking place before, after and on the IDP itself. We feel fortunate to work with so many wonderful partners in this initiative, including those from the community, cultural, educational, and philanthropic sectors. These partners organize an array of activities each year that enable Montrealers to contemplate and to take concrete action for peace.
The Peace Network assembles these activities under the banner of Peace Days; it is a special moment on the calendar to highlight the peace builders of our city and their tremendous efforts. The rich and diversified Peace Days programming includes more than fifty activities each year, grouped into four main categories: In Dialogue; Learning; Community; and Arts and Culture. Given the current health context, many activities this year will take place online.
