Dr. Joseph Wronka of the Springfield College School of Social Work and Behavioral Sciences was an invited speaker on August 5 at the International Conference to Commemorate the First International Day of Lockdown Territories, sponsored by the Organization of Kashmir Coalition, the International Human Rights Association of American Minorities, and the International Center for Human Rights.

As part of Wronka's presentation, he hopes that the UN General Assembly will officially endorse, as soon as possible, August 5 as the International Day of Lockdown Territories as an annual event alongside such other notable days such as:

August 9, the International Day of Indigenous Peoples; March 8, the International Day of Women; and of course, December 10, as International Human Rights Day.

Wronka believes that doing so is an excellent policy implementation strategy, perhaps the best way to create a socially just policy, with human rights at its core and that this new international day can create an awareness of both the de jure and de facto plight of the marginalized and disenfranchised whose basic human right to self-determination has been violated.
