United Nations Association of Oklahoma City Invitation to Peace Day Observance on 9/21 @ the Capitol


My name is Priya Desai and I serve as the Advocacy Director of the United Nations Association of Oklahoma City. 

The reason I am contacting you is to invite you two free events we will be hosting in September to honor the International Day of Peace with the hopes that you will join us and participate. 

On September 21, 2017, at the state capitol, from 6-8 p.m. the UN Association of Oklahoma City will plant pinwheels for peace on the grassy knoll on the south side of the capitol building. They will have brief speakers at the Capitol event. 

We are encouraging organizations, classrooms, families, and individuals to join us on 9/21 at the Capitol. We would also like to encourage you to create your own pinwheels if you like. You can purchase your own pinwheels at Oriental Trading Company ( or create your own -Template for pinwheels link -a suggestion by Casady School Service-Learning Program - ( There are many videos on You Tube on how to make pinwheels.

Please, laminate paper pinwheels.  Paper gets flimsy and wet.  

You are more than welcome to drop off your pinwheels at the Turkish Cultural Festival on September 9, 2017, between 2-4 p.m. so that we can plant them with/for you during the event on September 21, 2017.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach Priya at or call/text me at 405.413.7513.
