June 19th in Baha'i History


1912: ‘Abdu’l-Bahá confers upon New York City the title of "City of the Covenant". On the same day, he explains to the believers there His station as the Centre of Baha'u'llah's Covenant.

1975 - Bahá'ís took full advantage of opportunities created by United Nations International Women's Year (1975). The Universal House of Justice appointed two women to represent the Bahá'í International Community at the historic World Conference on Women held in Mexico City between 19 June and 2 July 1975. Nine Bahá'ís were appointed to represent the Bahá'í International Community at the NGO Tribune held parallel to the World Conference. Bahá'ís participated fully in the Tribune activities, sponsoring an exhibit and holding a reception.
