CHICAGO, IL (January 13, 2020) – The Parliament of the World’s Religions is partnering with Chicago-based interfaith organizations and communities of faith and spirituality to host a public interfaith fair in observance of the 10th Anniversary of the United Nations World Interfaith Harmony Week. World Interfaith Harmony Week (WIHW) provides a platform—one week per year—when all interfaith groups and other groups of goodwill host events during the first week of February to help neighbors of different faiths get to know each other and build a foundation for more peaceful and friendly communities.
Background on the U.N. World Interfaith Harmony Week:
It is based on an United Nations General Resolution A/65/PV.34 for a worldwide week of interfaith harmony. It was proposed in 2010 by HM King Abdullah II and HRH Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad of Jordan and has been celebrated annually by organizations and communities around the world.
The Chicago Interfaith Fair will be hosted on Thursday, February 6th from 12pm - 6pm at the historic Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E Washington St, 2nd Floor, G.A.R Hall & Rotunda, Chicago, IL 60602. Featuring the participation of Chicago-based interfaith organizations, programming, art, and exhibits. The fair is organized in partnership with Faith In Place , Interfaith Youth Core , OMNIA Institute for Contextual Leadership , Spiritual Playdate , the Niagara Foundation , the Interfaith Community for Detained Immigrants and the Interreligious Institute at Chicago Theological Seminary. Individuals, groups, communities of faith & spirituality, and organizations in the Chicagoland and surrounding suburbs are invited to get involved by proposing a program, exhibiting at the fair and volunteering with the Parliament. Proposals and exhibits should emphasize the importance of interfaith harmony and its relationship to the community.
