Participation in the Parliament of the World’s Religions November 1-7, 2018

Sikhs Americans and Sikhs from other countries are requested to not only participate but also support this great event which only happens once every 3-4 years. Over 10,000 religious leaders from across the globe will be attending the ‘Parliament of the World’s Religions – PoWR’ at the Metro Toronto Convention Center in Toronto, Canada from November 1 – 7, 2018.

Registration for the PWR is ongoing, except every few months the registration fees goes up as we get closer to the event https://parliamentofreligions.org/webform/2018-parliament-registration. The American Sikh Council – ASC can register anybody wanting to attend at a slightly lower rate, therefore anyone wanting to attend needs to contact us at the earliest contact@americansikhcouncil.org.

Furthermore, anybody wanting to speak or present at any one of the sessions at the PoWR, needs to submit a proposal to PoWR through their website ONLY https://parliamentofreligions.org/webform/2018-program-proposal-form. The recently extended deadline for submitting the proposals is now April 15, 2018. Anyone interested must do so immediately, as hundreds of proposals are sent in, but only a small percentage gets approved finally.

The American Sikh Council – ASC has already registered for a booth and will be disseminating all kinds of information on the Sikh Faith and heritage, displaying books, answering questions and finally tying turbans. See ASC’s participation in 2015; https://americansikhcouncil.org/2015/10/28/sikhs-excel-at-the-parliament-of-worlds-religions/.

Several members and well-wishers who are participating will be presenting. There is a push by PWR to encourage women and the youth to step and speak on various topics. Please take this rare opportunity to attend and interact with the top religious leaders from across the globe at this event.

We humbly request that all Sikhs and other well-wishers to support and generously donate for the various activities that our volunteers are planning to carry out at this week-long convention.
