International Justice Mission (IJM) and Indian Pluralism Foundation (IPF) hosted a ‘Breakfast Fellowship’ to initiate inter-faith dialogue for all faith leaders in the city of Kolkata called ‘Faith~United’ for Peace, Justice and Social Action on 15th June 2019.
The dialogue was to promote a cause for justice to dialogue with faith leaders on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #16 that calls for sustainable development to provide access to justice for all and building effective, accountable institutions at all levels. IJM aims to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for all including the poor and vulnerable, combating violence against women and children to building a ‘Safe Community’.
The United Nations sees violence as the most significant and destructive challenge to the development, growth, and the very survival of countries around the world. Institutional restrictions to justice have suspended basic freedoms, security, and human rights to all individuals.
