Some Historical Notes

We Are Pro-Integrity and Anti-Corruption

Greetings!

We have appreciated joining with others to launch the first Global Integrity Day, commemorating it on 9 June 2020. This special, annual day is something which we have been calling for since December 2016, to shine the global spotlight on moral health for a more-whole world (see Global Integration Update, January 2019). It is an impetus to endeavor to live in integrity always and in every area of our lives.

This
is a positive day to reflect, teach, and collaborate on ways to integrate integrity in all we do throughout the entire year. It is a day to promote a) cultivating lifestyles of integrity from the individual through the international levels; b) working together to address the causes and consequences of corruption in its many forms; and c) collaborating for just and equitable societies marked with wellbeing for all persons/peoples and for the planet (see Everyday Global Heroes: Moral Lives Matter, January 2017).

Global Integrity Day is also a solemn day to consider our ways: if we are lying and/or stealing in any way big or small, then stop it. If we need to right a wrong we have done, then do so. Be the people we need--Build the world we need.

We hope in due course that it will be designated both as a new United Nations International Day and as a companion day to the already designated International Anti-Corruption Day (9 December). In the meantime, we invite friends and colleagues around the world, and organizations large and small, to join together in solidarity, finding common ground for the common good, to commemorate this special day and its inauguration on 9 June 2020 and throughout this year.
