2016-09-27-nexus-business-religious-freedom-poster-a4-engOn Oct. 18, RFBF Brian Grim is speaking at the EU Parliament in Brussels, highlighting the amazing impact of the Global Business & Interfaith Peace Awards finalists.

In London, he’ll be highlighting these same champions at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and then in Parliament’s Westminster Hall. There, we’ll present medals to two award-winners who couldn’t make it to the Rio ceremony: Baroness Emma Nicholson (UK & Iraq) and Dr. Fouad Makhzoumi (Lebanon & UAE).

From London, he’ll head to Dubai to be with Gold Medalist, Y.W. Junardy (Indonesia) at the annual meeting of the United Nations Global Compact’s Business for Peace initiative, our partner for the awards.

Helping Grim with the presentations at Westminster Hall are Lisa Burns and Hinna Parves, who are helping lead our Manchester Empowerment+ interfaith social cohesion and enterprise initiative. Also helping is Melissa Grim, coauthor of the recent study on the economic contribution of faith to American society and project manager for the Awards.
