PARTNERSHIP FOR THE ELIMINATION OF POVERTY

A CONFERENCE ON CHANGING THE WORLD’S PRIORITIES FROM WAR TO PEACE

Sunday, June 24, 2012

From 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Hosted by: The Islamic Center of Morris County, 1 Mannino Drive, Rockaway, N.J. 07866

The conference will promote:

  • The end of world poverty,
  • The Global Marshall Plan (GMP) and
  • Moving money from the military to humanitarian and environmental needs.

Come join this team effort among the organizers, sponsors and friends: congregations of many faiths, interfaith peacemaking groups, secular peace organizations and humanitarian groups to advocate on behalf of people in need, especially the 14 million human beings who perish each year from poverty-related causes and pollution.

We will identify programs that help people in need, support legislative programs to eliminate poverty and organize to accomplish the long-term goals developed at the conference. This is an opportunity to have your voice heard!
