Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to be a bridge between our Parliament group in our local (Los Angeles/So Cal) community with URI and other interfaith communities and to model interfaith co-operation supporting each others projects and initiatives. As a URI CC, we also want to participate and share ideas with other CC’s and the URI global network.

WICPWR (Westside Interfaith Council for a Parliament of World’s Religion) is an offshoot of the original SCCPWR (Southern CA Committee for a Parliament of World’s Religions - now an alliance organization only) which, in 2011 has decentralized into regional groups. Our current WICPWR membership is mostly comprised of board members of that previous entity. During it’s time (approx. 5 years) SCCPWR was involved in creating many local interfaith events and Pre-Parliament of the World’s Religions events. As a “new” group we are now developing different projects. Currently some of our committees are youth, the arts and a jail ministry. We also organized a most successful Sound of Peace Singing Bowls Concert earlier this year. Other than planning our own events at this time, we actively support and co-sponsor other organizations events.  We have several members who are ordained ministers of various traditions.

We dream of being a model for peace.
