INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
Thousands of people from all over the World gathered in Salt Lake City for The Parliament for the World’s Religions on November 12, 2015.  The festivities began with a two day celebration of Women.  Over two thousand women and some five hundred men gathered for interfaith prayer, presentations, seminars, and small group encounters.  We not only became more aware of the plight of women in the World but their courage, wisdom, and determination to claim their dignity, find their voice, and stand up for what is true and just.  This gathering of women marked a significant turning point in the history of the World and the Interfaith movement.
The Interfaith Peace Project will continue to support the efforts of women everywhere to claim their full human dignity.  We are proud to stand in solidarity with men, women, and children who seek to build a better World based on the human rights of all people to live in dignity and peace.
We are dedicated to providing educational programs honoring Women’s Voice in history and contemporary society.  We are dedicated to challenging sexism and patriarchy as we work for justice and peace for all people.
All of us have an obligation to seek the voice of women throughout the World who challenge the powers of oppression often at the risk of their safety and life.
On March 8th, The Interfaith Peace Project invites you to celebrate the women in your life who inspired you with their courage and wisdom.
How we treat and respect women is the measure of how we treat and respect ourselves.  The time has come for children, men, and women to stand together as we claim our dignity, find our voice, and stand up for what is right, true, good, and beautiful.
With the Board of Directors,
Thomas P. Bonacci, C.P.
