CC Cofounders to Present at the Parliament of the World's Religions

The Compassion Consortium is very proud to announce that the CC Cofounders have been selected to present at the Parliament of the World’s Religions, August 14-18, 2023, in Chicago.

The Parliament of the World's Religions was created to cultivate harmony among the world's religious and spiritual communities and foster their engagement with the world and its guiding institutions in order to achieve a just, peaceful and sustainable world.

Its origins are rooted in the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, where the historic first convening of the World Parliament of Religions created a global platform for engagement of religions of the east and west.

For more information about this event, its programs and registration details, see Parliament of the World's Religions – The Global Interfaith Movement (
