2019 theme: If You Want Peace & Development, Work for Social Justice
This is directly from the United Nations website. On this day we recognize that the only way for there to be peace and equity is for everyone to be treated with respect and dignity. The United Nations recognizes that social justice can only be achieved through removing the barriers created by the social constructs around sex, gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture, and ability.
This too is at the core of what we do at the Center for Positive Sexuality. We are striving to remove barriers and create change by addressing social issues through sex positive research and education. Our positive sexuality framework includes, among other factors, humanizing and peacemaking. These are key elements to achieving equity and social justice.
Whether you support the Center or other organizations who are working towards these goals, do your part to work for social justice. This is the only way we all make progress and prosper.
