National Hunting and Fishing Day
On May 2, 1972, President Richard Nixon signed the first National Hunting and Fishing Day proclamation, declaring, "I urge all our citizens to join with outdoor sportsmen in the wise use of our natural resources and in insuring their proper management for the benefit of future generations." National Hunting and Fishing Day is celebrated on the fourth Saturday of every September.
National Family Health and Fitness Day USA
Family Health & Fitness Day USA is a national health and fitness event for families observed annually on the last Saturday in September. The event's purpose is to promote family involvement in physical activity. Local organizations throughout the country will host family-related health and fitness events at schools, park districts, hospitals, YMCAs/YWCAs, malls, health clubs and other community locations.
National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
In 2008 the National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA) launched this observance day to recognize the disproportionate impact of the epidemic on gay and bisexcual men. The day is a call to action to ensure that every person in every community-especially gay and bisexual men of all ages-knows and talks about HIV prevention and treatment options.
International Right to Know Day
The decision to celebrate and promote September 28 as the International Right to Know Day was taken on the last day of a Freedom of Information litigation conference held in 2002. The day acknowledges that the right of access to information is an important human right, is essential for transparent and accountable government, and makes possible the public involvement in formulating social policies and in the decision-making processes of governance.
