The Baha’i Community of Halifax joins the Interfaith Harmony Halifax Declaration.
"Given the many tragic events around the world, directly or indirectly related to religious intolerance, misunderstanding and/or ignorance, World Interfaith Harmony Week offers a very meaningful opportunity for mutual self-reflection, open-mindedness, respect and understanding.

"At the centenary of the United Nations, might it not be possible for all the inhabitants of our common homeland to be confident that we have set in motion a realistic process for building the global order needed to sustain progress in the coming centuries? This is the hope of the Bahá’í International Community and the goal toward which it labors. We echo the poignant appeal long ago voiced by Bahá’u’lláh about the leaders and arbiters of human affairs: “Let them take counsel together and, through anxious and full deliberation, administer to a diseased and sorely afflicted world the remedy it requireth.”
In 1991 the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is of the United States issued a statement on the ongoing Racism issues in that country. It still resonates today and provides a much-needed perspective. READ the full Statement.
