Ambassadors for Peace

Las Vegas Proposed as a Model City for Peacebuilding


Las Vegas, United States - The Las Vegas chapter of UPF-USA held a reunion mixer at the Now Café on the 2nd floor of the Las Vegas City Hall on March 19. The 22 guests heard plans for Las Vegas to become the model city for peacebuilding in America. 

Newly appointed Las Vegas UPF-USA leaders Mrs. Katherine Duncan-Bartlett, chairwoman, and Mr. Gregg Smith, secretary general, established three committees aligning with the national and international goals presented by UPF-USA President Ricardo de Sena. One of the main goals outlined was the holding of an American Leadership Conference in Las Vegas this year.


Local Ambassadors for Peace eagerly registered for assignments on the three committees: interfaith peacebuilding, marriage and family relations and serving the community.

Ambassadors for Peace were asked to support the amazing work that is already being done in Las Vegas to strengthen local initiatives such as the Mayor’s Interfaith Council, the Women’s Federation for World Peace, and the Family Education and Empowerment Foundation. They were also encouraged to become members of the Universal Peace Federation and to help plan an annual “One World under God” fundraising event.


“I was very thrilled to have a big check presented on behalf of UPF Founder Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon,” said Mrs. Duncan-Bartlett, in a surprise presentation to support the Moulin Rouge Community Development Corporation. The corporation is a major community service project aimed at eradicating slums and blight in Las Vegas, restoring an important African-American landmark and establishing a training center for the hardest-to-employ individuals to find jobs in the hospitality industry.

President de Sena was very pleased with the Now Café and suggested that UPF-Las Vegas have all its monthly meetings in the same location.  UPFLV believes it will grow large enough to have its meetings at the Las Vegas City Council Chamber in the near future.
