We declare March 11th We Are Family Day — and WAFF is now working with U.S. Congress and the United Nations to officially mark March 11th as global We Are Family Day. But we need your help!
What is We Are Family Day? We Are Family Day will celebrate our common humanity and provide an opportunity for teachers, parents and educators of all kinds to teach our youth about different cultures, different religions and the importance of respecting our fellow human beings.
Why? The world has become smaller due to the ability to communicate faster and more efficiently, and yet conflict and misunderstanding between cultures, religious groups and countries dominates the landscape. It is imperative that the citizens of the world learn about those who are different from them and create a global outreach for the greater good. We are all in this together.
How can you help? Sign the petition for Congress and the U.N. to make March 11th We Are Family Day.
VADM Albert H. Konetzni Jr. (Ret.)
