We invite you to join us for a World Interfaith Harmony Week event sponsored by TOU and other religious NGOs:

Inspiring Faith in Humanity

February 7, 2018, 1:00-3:30pm
Tillman Chapel, Church Center for the UN
777 United Nations Plaza, NYC

Faith in humanity brings us closer together, restores dignity to the oppressed, and gives us a collective voice to speak out against injustices. During this event, religious leaders, UN representatives, and diplomats will share their stories and knowledge. Partnership between religious communities and the United Nations will bring the world toward a more compassionate and sustainable future.

Please join us for thoughtful presentations and festive music and food, and to celebrate our faith in humanity.

The 2018 NYC Women's March in Images
TOU's Main UN Representative Grove Harris attended the 2018 NYC Women's March. She writes:

I met participants ranging in age from two months to 97 years. Kindness emerged as a fundamental value, and this year many men came to stand in full support of women's empowerment. ...Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King's words were lifted up, linking religion and social action. Marching, as one type of activism, seems to be the new normal.
