Red Hand Day – The Effort Continues

Red Hands
We rejoice in the witness of 250,000 red hands being delivered to the United Nations Secretary-General. Among those were red hands created by Presbyterians at the Association of Presbyterian Church Educators' Annual Conference.

During 2009, the 20th anniversary of the ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Presbyterian Church's Office of Child Advocacy, the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program and the Presbyterian United Nations Office are partnering to keep the issue of child soldiers at the forefront.  

Recognizing that the important witness of Red Hand Day is a step but the issue of child soldiers remains, the Office of Child Advocacy will continue to collect "red hands."

Make hands by cutting out red construction paper, by drawing an outline in red on white paper, by using finger paint, or in another creative way.

Send red hands to:

    Office of Child Advocacy
    100 Witherspoon Street, Room 3224
    Louisville, KY 40202-1396

The Presbyterian United Nations Office will deliver the red hands later in the year.
