Proclamation 3533—United Nations Day, 1963
April 20th, 1963

By the President of the United States of America
A Proclamation

Whereas the United Nations symbolizes man's eternal quest for enduring peace with justice, and provides us with our most promising means for achieving that high purpose; and

Whereas the United Nations has, on numerous occasions during its brief life, clearly and forcefully demonstrated its value as a vital diplomatic forum in times of international crises; and

Whereas the United Nations, through its participation in programs for social and economic development, has provided significant material assistance and leadership throughout the world in efforts to raise standards of life; and

Whereas the United Nations actively sponsors and advances the cause of human rights; and

Whereas the United Nations serves the interests of this Nation by promoting humanitarian principles which we share; and

Whereas citizens of the United States should recognize the aims and accomplishments of the United Nations; and

Whereas the General Assembly of the United Nations has resolved that October twenty-fourth, the anniversary of the coming into force of the United Nations Charter, should be dedicated each year to making known the purposes, principles, and accomplishments of the United Nations

Now, Therefore, I, John F. Kennedy, President of the United States of America, do hereby urge the citizens of this Nation to observe Thursday, October 24, 1963, as United Nations Day by means of community programs which will demonstrate their faith in the United Nations and contribute to a better understanding of its aims, problems, and accomplishments.

I also call upon the officials of the Federal and State Governments and upon local officials to encourage citizen groups and agencies of the press, radio, television, and motion pictures, to engage in appropriate observance of United Nations Day throughout the land in cooperation with the United States Committee for the United Nations and other organizations.

In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States of America to be affixed.

DONE at the City of Washington this twentieth day of April in the year of our Lord Nineteen hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and eighty-seventh.


JOHN F. KENNEDY

By the President:
DEAN RUSK,
Secretary of State
