Mandela Day

July 18
Worldwide

July 18 is Mandela Day, an international day first recognized by the United Nations in 2009 in honor of the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and former South African President Nelson Mandela's birthday during which he celebrates by asking everyone to help make the world better, healthier, and just. The Mandela Day slogan is "Take Action. Inspire change. Make every day a Mandela Day." This year he is asking you to set aside 67 minutes to do something positive for your community and for yourself, from cleaning up litter in your neighborhood to getting tested for HIV if you haven't already.
