Dear ISB Students, Parents, Faculty and Staff,
Due to COVID restrictions still in place for our student assemblies, ISB’s International Day of Peace event, originally scheduled for September 21st, 2022, has been moved to March 21st, 2023. This new date, chosen to coincide with the UN’s International Day for the Elimination of Racial Descrimination, not only assures a unified experience for our entire student body, but also allows the Global Initiatives Network student organizers a better opportunity to gather ISB stories that address this year’s UN Peace Day challenge, End Racism, Build Peace and highlight the March 21st theme, Voices for Action Against Racism. Look for more information soon about this student- led initiative and how you can share your own personal experiences about racism, and stories about others in our community who you have observed using their voices to fight against racism.
In unity with Peace Day events held around the world, ISB will observe a moment of silence at 9:15am on September 21st to remember those who have suffered because of racism, and given their lives fighting against racism.
ISB’s IDP Committee
