On June 6, 2012, New Yorkers of all faiths will come together to support the Kenyan Sikh community’s efforts to fight the famine that has devastated their region since last summer. Hunger, an issue that cuts across all faiths, is a natural point of connection for the 10 NYC congregations that have been collaborating to fight global injustice since March as part of the Spring of Solidarity campaign. And it’s not too late to take part.

A Season of Multi-Faith Action

Communities and individuals across NYC have been working together not only to have impact on issues of global health and hunger, but to show the positive power that people of faith can have when they unite around action rather than debating divisive issues.

Through the process of raising funds, getting educated on issues and doing local service, participants have had the opportunity to build relationships with people of other faiths as they work to fight against two injustices of our time, food insecurity and malaria. From congregation-based activism and social justice-themed book discussions to an interfaith youth debate programin Queens, the Spring of Solidarity has been a busy season of collective action from diverse groups all over New York City.

She said communication for peaceful co-existence supported the emergence of tolerant and well-integrated societies at local, national and global levels.“Peaceful societies are founded on political, economic, social and gender justice.

Faith communities, as well as other civil society organisations and groups are uniquely positioned to advance mutual understanding, peace and justice, and the integrity of creation,’ said Achtelstetter in the presentation titled: Communication for Peace-a Task for Faith Communities. IFAPA is a group that brings together Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Baha’i and the African Traditional Religion (ATR).
