Ms. Audrey Kitagawa is Chair of the Parliament of the World Religions, an organization that dates back to 1893. Referring to the historic coming together of World UNITY Week Ms. Kitagawa said “civil society is the sleeping giant that has awakened to its power to create great global movements for the transformation of humanity.”
Rev. Victor H. Kazanjian Jr, Executive Director of the United Religions Initiative said: “at a time when the deep divisions and inequities that fracture the human community is being exposed, World Unity Week provides a way for us to reweave the fabric of our interconnectedness with people of all beliefs and cultures and with our planet while we continue to address the challenges we face.”
