County Human Relations Commission observes Interfaith Harmony week

Submitted By Moina Shaiq

The United Nations General Assembly has proclaimed the first week of February to be World Interfaith Harmony Week. The Alameda County Human Relations Commission supports this notion that all people, regardless of religion or no religion, faith, culture or belief, observe the need for dialogue to enhance mutual understanding and cooperation. We encourage members of all communities to reach out to other communities to share one another's customs, ceremonies, and fundamental beliefs so that awareness, education and knowledge may be the basis for acceptance, respect and common ground. Focusing on the similarities and acknowledging the differences possessed by all people provides the foundation for community, collaboration and caring.
