Nobel Peace Prize Forum
March 1, 2014
MMN is proud to partner with the Nobel Peace Prize Forum, which is a conference for globally-minded peacemakers of all faith groups. The clergy of MMN will be presenting “How Can Religious Communities Help Bend the Moral Arc of the Universe Toward Justice?” on March 1st at the Minneapolis Convention Center as a part of the Forum’s Faith and Peace Day.
The 26th annual Nobel Peace Prize Forum will focus on “Crossing Boundaries to Create Common Ground”. The Nobel Peace Prize Forum is a unique civic learning experience. This dynamic, public, global event brings Nobel Peace Prize winners, civic leaders, and scholars together with students and other citizens. As the Norwegian Nobel Institute’s only such program or academic affiliation outside of Norway, the Forum has a special mission: to inspire peacemaking by celebrating the work of Peace Prize winners.
The Downtown Congregations to End Homelessness (DCEH) is an interfaith collaboration of 14 downtown Minneapolis churches, synagogues and mosques working together to end homelessness and poverty. DCEH focuses on shifting from an immediate needs approach to long term solutions through a combination of education, advocacy and action. Through learning and volunteer opportunities for congregants, community partnerships, and development of effective strategies and programs, the DCEH is committed to impacting the community around us to decrease homelessness.
