Franciscans International

FI held a Symposium for the Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The main focus of the conference was the UNESCO "Culture of Peace" project. The findings and proposals coming out of the conference will be expanded and submitted to the Peoples’ Assembly 2000, to be held parallel to the UN General Assembly 2000. FI continues its campaign to close the School of the Americas to cancel Third World Debt through the Jubilee 2000 campaign lobbies to get the US to ratify CEDAW (Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women) and supports many other worldwide Peace/Justice/Safeguard of Creation issues.
