We commend the Parliament of the World’s Religions for its immense role in making different communities see that the common ground is greater and more enduring than the differences that divide. It is in that spirit that we can approach the dawn of the new century with some hope that it will be indeed a better one for all of the people of the world.Nelson Mandela
I believe the interfaith movement can contribute in helping to save the world. But not just through the nice words of dialogue but with our actions.For this reason I congratulate the Parliament of the World’s Religions for adopting declarations on these critical issues.H.H. The Dalai Lama
We need the Parliament to help organize religious practitioners committed to the same issues into global grassroots movements that apply real political pressure. . . . Only the Parliament, the largest interfaith gathering on earth, has the potential to serve as a platform to mobilize such interfaith social justice movements on a global scale.Valarie Kaur
After focusing for a few years on the problem of gender discrimination through our human rights program at The Carter Center, I began to speak out more forcefully about it. Because of this, I was asked to address the Parliament of the World’s Religions, an audience of several thousand assembled in Australia in December 2009, about the vital role of religion in providing a foundation for countering the global scourge of gender abuse.President Jimmy Carter
My earliest involvement in interfaith work came through the Parliament. I remember being hugely inspired as an early twenty-something by the Parliament's vision of a world where faith served as a bridge of cooperation rather than a barrier of division - so inspired that I've dedicated my life to this vision.Dr. Eboo Patel

The Parliament of the World’s Religions cultivates harmony among the world’s spiritual traditions and fosters their engagement with guiding institutions in order to achieve a more peaceful, just and sustainable world. Its origins are rooted to the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, where the historic first convening of the World Parliament of Religions created a global platform for engagement of religions of the east and west. Headquartered in Chicago, Il, USA, the Parliament of the World’s Religions is an international 501c3 NGO affiliated to the United Nations Department of Public Information.
The Parliament manages various programs throughout the year and hosts the world’s premier interfaith convening in cities across the globe. Past Parliaments have convened nearly 50,000 people across the world in Chicago, IL, USA; Cape Town, South Africa; Barcelona, Spain; Melbourne, Australia; Salt Lake City, USA; and Toronto, Canada.
