This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for six government leaders and religious advocates from Iraq and their U.S. State Dept. interpreters, who will be visiting Detroit to examine Encouraging Peaceful Coexistence And Cooperation Between Religious Groups.
The delegation's program in Detroit, MI will provide religious leaders with the tools necessary to engage younger generations so that they embrace and practice religious coexistence and cooperation by observing successful programs in the U.S.
A lot of people spend half their lives to get the opportunity to meet the people that we met in just 10 days [in Detroit]. This concentration of knowledge and resources brought me one step closer to being global.
The opportunity to welcome and work with international delegations visiting Detroit provides a very rich experience. To be engaged in this work is significant and very rewarding. The world is becoming smaller every day and Global Ties Detroit contributes greatly in building strong bridges with people and nations across the globe.
