A Call to Conscience

April 5th marks the annual observance of International Day of Conscience, a day with a mission to promote a culture of peace with love and conscience. The United Nations affirms that the international observance aims to foster opportunities for dialogue and strong community relations based on a shared belief in human dignity, fundamental freedoms, and human rights, “without distinction as to race, sex, language, or religion.”

Let’s celebrate the world’s largest, most diverse, and inclusive interfaith opportunity for dialogue and community engagement, the Parliament of the World’s Religions!

This August join the 2023 Parliament of the World’s Religions in addressing “A Call to Conscience: Defending Freedom and Human Rights” and connect with thousands of international attendees committed to a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world.

The 2023 Parliament of the World’s Religions will be hosted in McCormick Place Lakeside Center from August 14-18, 2023.
