SCCPWR members join other interfaith communities at the Los Angeles launch of  Compassionate California initiative and the Los Angeles Compassion Games - July 28th, 2013

 
 
Welcome to SCCPWR on the web!

In 2004 a group of interfaith advocates from Los Angeles attended the Parliament of World's Religions in Barcelona, Spain. Inspired and motivated by their experience, when they returned home they gathered together to continue sharing the vigor and excitement of the Parliament and, in 2007 they officially formed the Southern California Committee for a Parliament of the World's Religions (SCCPWR) dedicated to locally supporting  and promoting  the vision and mission of the GLOBAL PARLIAMENT OF THE WORLD'S RELIGIONS. 

 

A California delegation of SCCPWR Board, Emeritus and Advisory members as well as local interfaith community participated at the 6th Parliament of Religions in Toronto,  1-7 of November, 2018.

The first time the Parliament was held in the U.S. since 1993 was 5th PoWR in Salt Lake City in 2015. 

       Have a look around to learn more about our local group and activities and our interfaith mission! If you are interested in VOLUNTEERING and supporting our work or possibly becoming a board member - please email us at sccpwr@gmail.com  We are purely a volunteer group, so please consider a donation to help our work.                      We welcome your participation and look forward to hearing from you. 

"If all religions make the betterment of humanity their main concern, then they can easily work together in harmony for world peace. Interfaith understanding will bring about the unity necessary for all religions to work together"

-
 His Holiness The Dalai Lama
