The Global Faith Forum (GFF) will be held on October 22-23 in Phoenix, AZ by Multi-Faith Neighbors Network.
Outrage is consuming our society, with anger and hostility permeating every facet of life. Recent studies report that political polarization in the US has reached a record high, resulting in cancel culture and a breakdown of empathy. Kindness and accountability have been abandoned in favor of political expediency, putting the very foundations of our democracy at risk. We must take action to reverse this trend, engaging in civil discourse and embracing diverse perspectives, before it’s too late. Our future depends on it.
At the Global Faith Forum, we will tackle the topics of civility, citizenship, and how to be a good neighbor from a variety of religious perspectives. Together, we will learn how EveryONE, individually and as a whole, can work on building peace in a time of outrage.
The Global Faith Forum is a gathering of unlikely allies that venture down an unlikely path in order to build flourishing communities in our nation and the world. This event takes us from having a conversation ABOUT others to having a conversation WITH others.
As a long-time champion of bridge-building between different religions, not many have worked to cross divides in the world more than Dr. Mohammad Al-Issa. From acknowledging the Holocaust to reaching out to different faiths & ideas, this has led to the culmination of his writing of the Makkah Declaration in 2019.
