UN Task Force
The Parliament of the World's Religions is proud to be an active affiliated NGO to the United Nations Department of Public Information (UN-DPI). Living into its mission to engage guiding institutions around the world, the Parliament of the World's Religions activates an annual United Nations Task Force to facilitate participation across several annual activities at United Nations, to align the efforts of the Parliament of the World's Religions to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, and advocate for interfaith perspectives and actions with:
- World Interfaith Harmony Week (February 1 - 7)
- The Commission on the Status of Women
- United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues
- UN-DPI Annual Conference
- and more!
The PWR United Nations Task Force regularly partners with a range interfaith, faith-based and advocacy-focused NGOs to facilitate parallel and side-events to annual United Nations Activities, working closely with the committee of Religious NGOs.
The Parliament of the World's Religions invites UN officials to present at our international convenings, especially in the areas of gender equity, climate action, atrocity crimes, violence and sectarian extremism, genocide, and nuclear proliferation.
The Task Force is comprised of members of the Parliament of the World's Religions Board of Trustees and our Youth Representatives, one of which has had the honor of delivering a keynote address during World Interfaith Harmony Week.
