The news about San Jose/Santa Clara County’s new status as a Partner City of the Council for a Parliament of the World’s Religions is beginning to spread.
On Thursday, November 12, 2009, beginning at 8:00 am, there will be a special reception at the Santa Clara County Government Center, 70 West Hedding, San Jose, in the auditorium. Co-sponsored by Supervisor Dave Cortese, the Center for Spiritual Enlightenment, and the Silicon Valley Partner City Group, it will be an opportunity to learn more about the Partner City network, commission the delegation that will be going to Melbourne on behalf of Silicon Valley, and to consider how this new status opens possibilities for richer collaboration among religious communities, governmental programs and local agencies to meet the needs of people in our region.
If you would like to attend the reception, RSVP by 11/09/09 to Rabia Chaudhry at 408-299-5030.
The Partner City Network is a program of the Council for a Parliament of the World’s Religions to create a global network of communities dedicated to building strong and creative relationships among diverse religious traditions.
