About Interfaith Harmony Week
and this UN Event February 3rd, 2016
Seating is limited! Register by Friday, January 29
World Interfaith Harmony Week, established by U.N. General Assembly Resolution 65/5, offers the opportunity to highlight the vital role of communities of faith working with the United Nations to guide our world toward a more compassionate, sustainable future.
Religious leaders will join distinguished governmental and U.N. speakers to demonstrate support for the Sustainable Development Goals. The focus will be on the importance of interfaith solidarity in accomplishing the Goals, as well as innovative approaches that develop a spirit of partnership among religious communities and with the United Nations.
Please join us for an afternoon of thoughtful presentations, music and ceremony. Schools and faith community groups are welcome!
