Ambassadors for Peace

Las Vegas Forum on Becoming True Peacebuilders

Participants of the Monthly Peace Forum

Las Vegas, United States—The Las Vegas chapter of UPF-USA held its monthly program and new Ambassador for Peace appointments at Las Vegas City Hall on April 29, 2015. Mrs. Katherine Duncan-Bartlett, chairwoman of UPF-Las Vegas, organized the event.

Mr. Ricardo de Sena, UPF-USA president explained UPF’s principles of peace and goals to the candidates and asked them to reaffirm the responsibilities of becoming an Ambassador for Peace. The awards and appointments were given by Mrs. Katherine Duncan-Bartlett, chairwoman, UPF-Las Vegas; Mr. Gregg Smith, secretary general, UPF-Las Vegas; and Mr. de Sena.

The newly appointed Ambassadors for Peace will begin their work immediately, addressing interfaith peace building, strengthening marriage and family, and organizing and engaging in community service projects. The first community service project will be the creation of the Moulin Rouge Float for the Helldorado Parade. The event will provide a community platform to discuss the history of race relations in America and address ways to solve conflict.

Moulin Rouge opened in 1955 as the first interracial hotel casino in America and closed shortly afterwards under political pressure because it was still illegal at that time for the races to mingle publicly. It would be another five years, or in 1960, when equal access would be granted through the signing of the “Moulin Rouge Agreement”.
