The 2023 Parliament Convening Welcomes All Learners to the Interfaith Table

The 2023 Parliament of the World's Religions is less than a year away and the Parliament is committed to fostering a global interfaith community that welcomes all learners to the interfaith table.

This commitment is made possible by individuals and communities who attend and shape our global Convenings. Through our Call for Programs, closing on October 3rd, join us in this commitment and offer opportunities to learn and share.

As 11 September Looms, Honor Those Lost and Remember Another 9/11

...The Parliament of the World’s Religions is calling upon all people of faith and goodwill, each partisan concerned that democracy is dying, to see in themselves what Vivekananda saw in the audience in 1893 when he said “people wending their way to the same goal” and join us in 2023 in building Patel’s bridge and “Defending Freedom and Human Rights.”
