About the Presentation
Ms. Roth will share her lived history with the formation and development with the United Religions Initiative (URI), the expanding scope of interfaith cooperation, and recent developments within the organization. The United Religions Initiative was born out of the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations celebration held in San Francisco in 1995. The original concept of a “United Nations for the religions of the world” has shifted and refocussed over the years, and it has grown into a worldwide movement of interfaith cooperation. Ms. Roth will also share the development of the regional potential and the latest projects. Group discussion and Q&A will also be welcomed. See web links below for further information.
