World conference against racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia, and related intolerance in durban

The BIC was one of nearly two thousand NGOs present at the NGO Forum of the United Nations World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance held in Durban. The conference itself was fraught with challenges that demonstrated the complexity of these issues and the sensitivity they must be addressed for meaningful change to occur. The BIC participated in the Religious, the Spiritual and the International NGO caucuses; it had an exhibition booth and distributed the publication One Same Substance: Building a Global Culture of Unity which provides an outline of the efforts Bahais are doing towards this goal.
