Pre-Parliament: A Taste of the 2015 Parliament at Salt Lake City
The Pre-Parliament event at Salt Lake City started with an opening heart-warming prayer from a blind native american. Malik Mujahid and Phyllis Currot from the Parliament board further discussed about the Parliament and its components. Mayor Ben McAdams and Mayor Ralph Becker also said few words welcoming the audience.
Followed by an amazing Hindu dance, the facilitators Natalie Gochnour, David Parker and Stephen Trimble addressed the key issues of widening wealth gap, violence/hate crimes and climate change. Through this event the Parliament provided the local Salt Lake City community a taste of the 2015 Parliament and the possibilities/opportunities for their community.
