We are on a Mission
Since 1995, the initial goal of the Siblings Day Foundation (SDF) has been to establish a national day of recognition for brothers and sisters, to be called National Siblings Day, held annually on April 10th. Siblings Day follows the spirit of Mother’s and Father’s Day, an uplifting celebration honoring people who have helped in our development and who have shaped our values, beliefs, and ideals.
Further, the SDF seeks to unite and reunite siblings who may have been separated by distance, by circumstance, by birth and adoption, or interpersonal familial issues.

Whereas, our families shape who we are – they are foundational in the creation of our burgeoning identities. The impact of our caregivers cannot be overstated, teaching invaluable life lessons and instilling the confidence and good judgment necessary to mature into wise adults. However, it is our siblings who stand beside us as constant companions throughout the journey of life. They sustain our spirits and support us during the ebbs and flows of our lives. It is so important that we honor those unshakeable bonds, and that is why I am pleased to recognize the Siblings Day Foundation (SDF).
Whereas, The organization was founded in 1995 by Claudia Evart, who had lost her own siblings Lisette and Alan in years prior. In the face of this painful tragedy, she found within herself the strength to transform this burial into a planting by establishing SDF. Through its concerted advocacy campaign, the group has worked tirelessly to establish National Siblings Day on April 10th for people across the country to celebrate their siblings. Whether individuals choose to send cards and spend quality time together or light candles of remembrance and volunteer in their memory, this day encourages everybody to take the time out of their day to honor and fortify the unique and powerful love between siblings. In addition, SDF also supports several important initiatives, such as support groups and the Sibling Rights Project.
Whereas, When the COVID-19 pandemic spread across our city and nation, we all struggled to stay connected despite isolation. For many, those difficulties still linger. The unyielding bond of friendship that exists between siblings was crucial in getting us through that challenging time, and it will continue to be key as we rebuild, renew, and reinvent our great city. On the occasion of SDFs Siblings Day Social, I am pleased to recognize this organization for its commitment to uplifting these relationships and fortifying New York.
Now therefore, I, Eric Adams, Mayor of the city of New York, on Friday, November 18th, 2022, do hereby confer this citation on:
