Solidarity Through Service

Our local awareness campaign in honor of International Human Solidarity Day.

In 2005, the UN General Assembly, proclaimed 20 of December as International Human Solidarity to promote the culture of solidarity and the spirit of sharing.

Solidarity Through Service is a month-long awareness campaign designed to bring people together across faiths and cultures through  service in recognition of this day. The campaign takes place during the typical winter holiday season celebrated by multiple groups in the local community. Activate Good believes that acts of service are a vehicle for increasing empathy and understanding for people across differences. When we serve together, we are all helpers, united in solidarity by purpose – despite any differences in race, nationality, faith, or other factors.
