QUNO attends Mandela Memorial at historic Riverside Church

Members of the QUNO New York staff attended a memorial service at the Riverside Church on 11 December to honour the life of Nelson Mandela. While we are deeply saddened by his death, we are reminded that the work towards a more just and peaceful world is as important now as ever. With deep inequalities that persist in our own neighbourhoods, and the continued use of violent means to solve global issues, we must look within to see how in our own lives and work we can actively contribute to a more peaceful and just world.
