*Description of Chicago WFWP Chapter

The Chicago Chapter of WFWP USA, in observance of the United Nations International Day of Peace, also known as ‘Peace Day,’ held a forum with the theme of “Peace Begins With Me: Perspectives on Peace” on September 30 at the Elk Grove Village Library. This conference also included a fundraiser for the Lunis Kinderworld preschool in Nepal and the nine Schools of Africa pioneered by WFWP.

Recently, several religious leaders gathered at the Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago to address the crimes that are plaguing our families and communities. Bruce Sutchar, a member of the Chicago Family Church and a city councilman, invited Patricia Fliginger and I to represent Women’s Federation for World Peace in prayer and solidarity with them. This gathering was an opportunity for people of different faiths and different ethnic and racial backgrounds to pray for our city, Chicago, in the pursuit of mercy and justice.Patricia and I were quite honored to represent WFWP and be a part of any action that could ultimately bring peace for so many families impacted by crime or the loss of a loved one or acquaintance.
