Brian Grim addressed the Second Interreligious Forum of the Americas “FIDELA” | June 7-8, 2022 | Center at Cathedral Plaza, Los Angeles

The Ninth Summit of the Americas, chaired and hosted by the United States, will be held on June 6–10, 2022, with a focus on “Building a Sustainable, Resilient and Equitable Future” for the Western Hemisphere. Within this framework, the Second Interreligious Forum of the Americas (FIDELA) convened in Los Angeles, on June 7-8, 2022, like other stakeholder forums, in the format of a hybrid conference. The deliberations were structured in plenary sessions and concurrent panels (with English-Spanish interpretation).

Brian Grim, president of the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation, shared a plenary talk about how business is a powerful force for interfaith understanding, religious freedom, and peace.

FIDELA offered a platform where religious leaders, representatives of faith-based organizations, government officials, and academics came together to provide concrete practical recommendations to the Heads of State and Government who will meet at the Ninth Summit of the Americas, and also contributed to better implementation and follow-up of their commitments.

All sessions of the Forum were live streamed.
