Third Annual Unity in Diversity Dinner Forum to Honor Community and Celebrate Diversity
by Jeevan Zutshi
The Indo-American Community Federation of the United States (IACF), a non-profit organization committed to serving the entire community by promoting unity in diversity, is hosting its third annual dinner on January 23. The Indo-American Community Federation is sponsoring this event to bring the entire community together to celebrate our diversity while we bond as one community. This year our theme is to work towards bringing peace and tranquility all across the globe. We hope this event sets the tone for the New Year and sends a message of peace and unity amongst all of the peoples in our global community. Nearly 100 public officials, community activists and leaders of diverse community groups will be attending.
Every year, we showcase some of the diverse cultural talents in the Bay Area and honor groups and individuals who have made outstanding contributions towards making our community a better place. Last year we honored the CBC (Citizens for Better Community), among others, for their outstanding civic work. This year, we will honor Assembly member John Dutra as Legislator of the Year for his service to the community and for making a tremendous difference in improving the quality of life for Californians.
We will also recognize the Fremont city council members for helping make the city of Fremont as one of the safest cities in the country as well as other outstanding individuals such as Yvette Brittain, for serving the community selflessly, particularly as legal assistant for seniors.
The event will also sponsor John Hagelin, Ph.D., world renowned quantum physicist who will speak on a growing international project to reduce terrorism and war and promote permanent peace. Dr. Hagelin has presented this project to the highest levels of U.S. government, including the White House, State Department, Pentagon and Congress. We are delighted that he will share with all of us, the project's status, its unprecedented consciousness-based approach, and the achievable vision for true unity and peace in the world.
The event will be held at the Fremont Marriott located. Social hour is between 6- 6:30 p.m. Dinner will start at 7:00 p.m. The event will feature live music by the Canyon Band and a Cultural program showcasing Indian cultural and popular dances.
