URI Turns 20 in 2020
United Religions Initiative is a transnational community birthed by people’s ambitions for peace and harmony, a group of people committed to finding resources of renewal within themselves and each other. It is the story of people from different religions, spiritual expressions and indigenous traditions who grew in friendships and created a global community dedicated to a mutual vision. URI is the product of the vision and hard work of thousands of people from diverse communities and beliefs who have shared their hopes and dreams with each other to build an inclusive, greener and peaceful tomorrow.
As we enter our 20th year, URI’s global community is surging with initiatives and finding new ways to connect amidst the global crisis. On June 26 2020, as we celebrate our collective endeavours to build interfaith networks dedicated to peace, justice and harmony across the world, we also strongly commit ourselves to addressing local, national and regional problems in the society and commemorating those countless grassroots stories, unsung heroes and people on the margins that are birthing and nursing a sustainable, healthier and peaceful world.
Hence we would like to express our sincere gratitude to YOU !! For making YOU are I an engaged and interconnected community committed to respecting diversity, nonviolent conflict resolution and social, political, economic and environmental justice.
We would also like to applaud the efforts of our valuable donors, faith leaders, global institutions, multilateral agencies, government institutions, supporters, cooperation circle members, friends, trustees, staff and interns who have been a part of this wonderful journey and have constantly believed in us. We are grateful to each one of you for helping us create influence, making a difference and touching lives globally. Congratulations on this special day!
