(Above) Together, we plan the upcoming program for the Family Peace Festival 2013, in Richmond. Last year's program in Byrd Park, Richmond, drew about 1000 visitors with 60 organizations participating. Leaders present were from: ICGR, Richmond Peace Education (RPEC) Center and UPF.

(Above) At the J. Sargeant Reynolds College (Parham) Campus, Richmond, our ICGR partner introduced the "Faith Club". It's a project that explores the various aspects of one's faith in a respectful and non-judgmental setting. Stereotypes are debunked, and one's faith's position on particular religious topics and issues can be discussed in frankness and openess. The Faith Club tackles topics such as: "Does God exist?; The Prophets in each Faith; Birth; Coming of Age; Marriage; Death; The uniqueness of each religion; etc.
Interfaith Cafe discussion groups were setup in order to encourage participants to freely share from their own perspective and experiences in their particular faith. As a part of the Membership Committee, I was able to present the Membership Outreach PowerPoint as an introduction to the ICGR interfaith organization.
