jUNe Day is a very special event established in 1965 by the late Ruth Steinkraus Cohen, private secretary to Eleanor Roosevelt and founder of the United Nations Association of Southwest Connecticut, in observance of the signing of the UN charter on June 26th, 1945. Friendly interactions between UN visitors and their Connecticut hosts embodies the UN goal of “working together for peace, freedom and justice”. Hundreds of United Nations diplomats, staff and families, from around the world, interact with local Fairfield County “citizen ambassadors” in a variety of activities, demonstrating good will and people-to-people diplomacy in its purest sense.
