Dr. Tarunjit Singh Butalia, RFPUSA Executive Director, said, “We welcome John as a colleague and brother in securing resources to make RPFUSA a sustainable organization so we can advance common actions for peace through multi-religious cooperation among our nation’s religious communities.”
Religions for Peace USA (RFPUSA) is the largest and most broadly-based representative multi-religious forum in the United States, with participants from about 50 religious communities, representing diversity within each of the major faith traditions and many of the minor ones. The mission of RFPUSA is to inspire and advance common actions for peace through multi-religious cooperation among our nation’s religious communities. We envision a nation in which people of faith and goodwill live together in respect and mutual support, creating paths to peace and justice.
