"...the destiny of human rights is in the hands of all our citizens in all our communities."
Our purpose is to promote a consciousness shift toward our comprehensive interconnectedness as we affirm our identity in ethical culture. We celebrate the transcendent possibility in ethical culture through the practice of ethical behavior and joyful engagement in community life. We see ourselves as change agents who connect with the emerging collective determined to bring about the evolution of consciousness. We dedicate ourselves to promoting and enhancing the highest principles at the United Nations, the AEU Federation and the Culture of Peace worldwide. We support all humanitarian work that is based in reciprocity and mutuality. We understand humanitarian work as vital not only to the relief of suffering but as essential to building a peaceful world.
We see our role at the United Nations as advocates for emergent holistic systems such as peace building, universality in human and earth rights, pluralism based in transparency and accountability and the affirmation of the Global Commons. While, originally, the UN was founded upon the sovereignty of nation states, we now believe that nation states in order to assert their true sovereignty, must cooperate with one another more effectively. They can do more to promote economic and cultural diversity, to promote trust and alliances of civilization. We advocate for our country to adopt and implement those international instruments both binding and non-binding necessary to promote world peace. It is time to ratify the Kyoto Protocol, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the International Criminal Court, Convention to Eliminate Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), and to adhere to the legal and spirit of all Resolutions.
You will find us officiating at Platforms, weddings, memorials, and baby namings. You will find us in the AEU on the Presidents' Council, the National Leaders' Council and on national Committees. We inaugurated the Rose L Walker Fund, which is dedicated to building mutually beneficial partnerships through seed grants. You will find us at the UN – at the hub of the steering Committee on the Global Movement for the Culture of Peace, on the Executive Council of the CONGO Committee Spirituality, Values and Global Concerns, founding member of the Working Group on Climate Change with the Committee on Sustainable Development, on the sub-committee against racism with the CONGO Committee on Human Rights. We are associated with the Department of Public Information, the Finance for Development Commission, and with those religious and non-religious NGO's who are peacebuilders. including the United Religions Initiative and the International Peace Day creators. Finally, you will find us in the world wide interspiritual movement especially through Interspirituality in Action.
