Universal Peace Federation (UPF)

UPF Peace Council 

43 Lancaster Gate, W2 3NA
10.30 am Sat 6th December 2014

Dear Friends,
We would like to invite you to the annual year end gathering as a follow up and a preparation for next year. One of the central themes of the development of the Universal Peace Federation (UPF) is the Peace Council that was proposed at the founding of the UPF as a place for people from many backgrounds to join together to discuss goals and strategies that can influence a nation or a city in a good direction. It was proposed as a forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences.

The Peace Council was proposed as the forum to bring together national level people of many backgrounds in order to pool their efforts. We intend to plan for 2015 for the projects and activities that we feel passionate about and that correspond to the UPF ethos. UPF in the UK is known for holding events and activities such as commemorating special UN Days such as 
Genocide and Holocaust DayInternational Family DayInternational Women's Day, Interfaith Week, and International Peace Day. We are also known for human rights events, interfaith activities and the development of Youth UPF. We are a partner of Parliament Week and Youth UPF held a debate on Lowering the Voting Age to Sixteen during Parliament Week 2014. We have held a series of events to raise awareness of human rights issues of sexual violence in eastern DR Congo and Conflict Minerals.

We will be having our Peace Council on December 6th 2014 in 43 Lancaster Gate. You will be joining activists from different parts of the UK. There will be a number of notable speakers present on the day who have been part of our regular activities throughout the year.

Annual Membership is only £30 if you join before the Peace Council (or at the reception desk on the day), where entrance to the Peace Council will be £5 instead of £12 to cover lunch costs. Otherwise it will cost £12 to attend the Peace Council.

Yours sincerely,

Secretary General - Robin Marsh (07956210768)
Director - Margaret Ali (07723024750)
Director - Joyce Suda (07903311052)
