At the invitation of Rt Hon Baroness Warsi (Minister for Faith and Communities) and the Rt Hon Don Foster MP (Minister for Integration) to a reception to celebrate the end of the Interfaith Week on Thursday 27th November, Mehri Niknam represented the Foundation.
At the reception, called ‘Together in Service’, the national celebration of faith-based social action, Baroness Warsi, said: “As Minister for Faith and Communities, every day I see the power and the potential of interfaith action. That is why I’m so proud that we have so many local and national inter faith organisations in the UK - more than any other country.”
The Baroness named the Joseph Interfaith Foundation as one of the three national organisations “leading the way in the country”.
Joseph Interfaith Foundation’s project for the Year of Service included “Interfaith congratulation card for HM Jubilee”. The card was received at St James’s Palace. http://www.josephinterfaithfoundation.org/joseph-main/previous/letterBuckingham.php
The Foundation’s second ground-breaking project, involved a prison visit by a group of senior imams and Rabbis from our Council of Imams and Rabbis, the only officially acknowledged Council. http://www.josephinterfaithfoundation.org/joseph-main/religiousLeaders.php
