URI Circles of Light festive event


ARRCC is a Cooperation Circle in United Religions Initiative, a global multi-faith network dedicated to peace-building among faiths and a more just and sustainable world.

URI was born from people’s dreams. It is a story about committed people finding resources within themselves and each other for creating positive community change.

It is the story of people from different religions, spiritual expressions, and Indigenous traditions who build bridges to create a cohesive global community dedicated to URI's purpose.

URI's 20th Anniversary

In 2019, URI was selected from hundreds of non-profits to be featured in the upcoming season of The Visionaries, the award-winning public television series hosted by acclaimed actor Sam Waterston.

"The Power of Story” features some of the remarkable stories of URI grassroots members and the extraordinary work they are doing in their communities.

URI is celebrating its 20th anniversary by inviting people to a festive virtual event in which people will view the “Visionaries” documentary and meet others from different parts of the world.

Here is the invitation:
