Objet : Annual International Conference on Ethnic and Religious Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding (taking place on October 1, 2014 in New York)
The Flyer for our 1st Annual International Conference on Ethnic and Religious Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding (taking place on October 1, 2014 in New York) has been created. Please find the conference flyer herewith attached. 
We still have space for more delegates.  Interested organizations, educational institutions, government agencies, religious groups or associations, ethnic associations, policy makers or public leaders, individuals or diaspora associations, are encouraged to participate.
While the conference is open to everyone, we expect to have individuals or groups from diverse fields of study and professions, especially, attendees from government agencies, the military, local, regional and international organizations, educational institutions, business corporations, international development agencies, religious bodies, and ethnic groups or associations. Anybody who wants to develop skills in the mediation and resolution of ethnic, racial, community, religious, sectarian, cross-border, personnel, environmental, organizational, public policy, and international conflicts can also participate.

We recognize this to be a crucial moment in history, a time to step up and ensure that our children and grandchildren do not have to suffer through the horrors of war or genocide in all of their guises. It falls to all of us to open the doors to dialogue, to come to truly know one another, and to accept that in so doing, we can take the first tentative steps toward a world that can work for everyone.
And so we begin by working from where we are by revealing the assets available to us. The religious and ethnic differences long blamed for hatred and intolerance are taken out into the light where the advantages that they offer, the connections between us that they make apparent and the opportunities for healthy relations they support are affirmed. Our strength and promise are based on this foundation.
We appreciate the burden of the schedule that your responsibilities maintain, yet hope that you will be able to join us and bring your invaluable insights to this event.
You are also invited to join our "Let's Talk About It" conversation on "Global Child Trafficking: The Hidden Human Tragedy of Our Time", a special interview with a Distinguished Guest: Carol Bellamy, Former Executive Director of UNICEF.  
Date: Wednesday, September 3, 2014 at 7 pm in Eastern Time, New York
