Your Voice Matters
To new and longtime supporters, please offer your support for the construction of the World Unity Inc. Landmark at the Martin Richard Park, formerly known as the Children’s Wharf Park. We’ve been dedicated to this mission for 22 years now entering the 23rd year. We are in good company, the Dr. King Memorial in Washington DC took 20 years and he won the Nobel Peace Prize.
Prejudice and bias impact every sector of a community. We have an innovative idea – to build the first landmark in the nation promoting equality, diversity and inclusion. It will engage our visual sense and our mind with a transformative, thought provoking poem:
“Are you greater than the sun/ that shines on everyone: Black, Brown, Yellow, Red and White/the sun does not discriminate.”
It has stood the test of time. In the mid 80’s it was the centerpiece of a city-wide multimedia public service campaign in Boston and New York City. Over the years individuals have shared stories of how they were changed just being exposed to the poem. Imagine how many minds and hearts can be changed with this landmark?
Our goal is to have at least 100 supporters offer their support. Help us reach this with just 5 minutes of your time. Thank you for your leadership and support.

World Unity Inc. was designated in 2001 to be part of Children’s Wharf Park now known as Martin Richard Park. I support their vision to build the World Unity Landmark promoting equality, diversity and inclusion. It will showcase the Sun poem: Are you greater than the sun/that shines on everyone: Black, Brown, Yellow, Red and White/ the sun does not discriminate. © 1985 Sara Ting. This is a great message for children to be exposed to create a generation of leaders who value diversity and inclusion.
