The Canadian Race Relations Foundation presented the Inter-faith for World Peace Society with the Community Champion Special Award at Building Bridges for Canada, held March 2, 2014 in Richmond, B.C.
Formally, established in 2009, the objective of the Inter-faith for World Peace Society (IWPS) is to embrace multiculturalism and promote racial harmony in the community. While recognizing and respecting the differences of individual faith groups, IWPS puts its emphasis on the passion for love and world peace that runs across all faiths. The approach of IWPS is to work from the grassroots level and focus on youth.
Partnering with a number of community and faith organizations, activities organized by IWPS have included community peace forums and dialogues, seminars, weekly radio programs, youth writing contests, Youth Symposium and Recitation, and World Peace Prayer and Dinner. Some themes of IWPS' activities revolve around The Harmony of Cultures, Religious Coexistence and Cooperation in a Secular Society, Media's Role in Fostering Inter-Faith Harmony, Compassion and Interfaith for World Peace.
