American Leadership Conference NY

New York City, NY – The Universal Peace Federation (UPF) USA in cooperation with The Washington Times Foundation (TWTF), and the Sun International Peace Federation are hosting the American Leadership Conference with the theme: “Discovering a New Paradigm to Address Our Critical Challenges”

In this time of rapid change, social disruption, global inter-connectedness, pervasive media, and divisive politics – our community and nations’ values, cultures and traditions are being meshed, challenged, uprooted, and redefined. There is a growing awareness among leaders throughout America that we need a new paradigm through which to view, understand and resolve the critical challenges of our time.  And we need to do this together, as one nation.

Conference participants will include distinguished leaders from the New York Metropolitan area representing non-profit, business, faith, political, cultural and academic sectors.  We will explore how to improve effectiveness, find deeper meaning and generate new connectivity for the sake of the family, community, nation and world. 

The discussions will center on the following core topics through dynamic interactive sessions:

  • Principles and best practices of true leadership, character, and governance
  • Marriage and family as our essential resource
  • Building community and civil society beyond the boundaries of race and religion
  • America as God’s hope – is this even possible today? (Yes.)

In addition to the facilitated roundtable discussion sessions, several expert guest speakers were invited who will provide briefings on the recent global expansion of UPF, Ambassadors of Peace, the launch of the new International Parliamentarians for Peace (IAPP) and fact-finding trips to a geo-political nerve center in Northeast Asia.  

If interested, please register now  Seating is limited. An online registration fee of $30 or $35 at the door is requested to cover lunch and the ALC Source Book 2017.
