Audrey E. Kitagawa
Chair, Parliament of the World’s Religions Board of Trustees

The Parliament’s Global Ethic, whose principles are foundational to our work, will have prominence in programs that seek to establish values and the development of a moral compass to guide our actions for the betterment of ourselves and the world in which we live. Like the hub of a wheel which is the solid core from which many spokes extend, so too will the Parliament’s Global Ethic be that critical center from which the work of our important task forces on Women, Climate Action, Indigenous People, Countering Hate, War and Violence, Justice, Next Generation, and other significant programs comprise the spokes that form the framework and context from which the great wheel of the Parliament will move forward into the frontiers of the future.

The rise of women in roles of leadership in religious institutions, peace processes and family homes to the houses of governance will bring the flourishing of respect, dignity and equality for marginalized and vulnerable people everywhere. Women’s powerful voices of advocacy cannot be ignored. Women’s voices of inspiration will soar to the heights of generative actions of compassion and loving kindness for each other. Women’s voices will speak truths where falsehoods exist as women are the first teachers of the moral code for the children we bring into the world. We celebrate the emergence of women as trailblazers of positive change.

Let us join hands and welcome the New Year together. Together, our dreams for a just, sustainable and equitable world can be realized. Together, we are strong.

With best wishes for a Happy New Year to you and your loved ones.
