Archbishop Desmond Mpilo Tutu was known as “Arch” to his friends and colleagues around the world. He worked tirelessly to end injustice in the world until he passed December 26, 2021. He was a lifelong champion of human rights and social justice as well as a powerful advocate for addressing the climate crisis. And he was a major supporter of We, The World and has collaborated with us since he helped us to launch 11 Days of Global Unity in 2004.
Even though he was completely retired, Desmond Tutu participated in our 2020 11 Days of Global Unity Summit on the Future of Humanity with world renowned environmentalist Vandana Shiva, Audrey Kitagawa, Jamie Margolin and others. It was Co-Produced by We, The World and Humanity Rising.
At the Summit he said,
“I am grateful to We The World, 11 Days of Global Unity and all of you who are committed to working together for a more peaceful, just and sustainable world. That is putting the WE in We, The World! Thank you and God Bless you.” – Archbishop Desmond Tutu
