Human trafficking is a crime against humanity. USFMEP is dedicated to increasing awareness of human trafficking and improving the status of women and children.

The 69th UN General Assembly general debate officially kicked off today. World leaders from more than 140 countries have gathered together in the UN to discuss major issues of international concern. USA President Barack Obama's speech today centered around counter-extremism and called on states to renew the international system for world peace. USFMEP is positive about the discussion today and seeks to exchange ideas of peace with world leaders in the UN.

On Sunday (Sep. 21st), more than 300,000 people marched on the street of Manhattan, NYC protesting immediate global action on climate change. This People's Climate March, organized by the 350.org Team, was the largest climate mobilization in the history and one of the 2646 climate-change events in 156 countries on Sunday. People expected to send their messages to the UN Climate Summit for discussion, which will be held on Tuesday (Sep. 23rd).
The USFMEP, who commits to international peace and justice, also supports immediate and effective actions of environment protection against climate deterioration, since climate change might lead to scarcity of resources which would cause regional conflicts.

USFMEP invites all nations and all people to come together as one to honour The International Day of Peace on 21 September. Each year, this Day is devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. 
May we all give this Day considerable time, and thought to reflect upon the devastating crises in our world and their effects on people and nations.

The USFMEP loves to honor strong and independent women! In 2009, we honored Ms. Mounira El Solhi for her tireless work on behalf women and people with disabilities. With our Woman of the Year Humanitarian Award, we commemorated her great strength and the opportunity we had to collaborate with her for the promotion of world peace and development.

She discusses her interest in this challenging discipline, and her commitment to proving that women’s contributions to the economy can also come from science and math-focused professions.

Human Rights are universal and all people are entitled to the respect and protection of these rights without discrimination. 
States have a duty to protect the dignity and identity of all human beings and guarantee everyone, without discrimination, respect for their integrity and other rights and fundamental freedoms in order to achieve peaceful existence.
Thanks to the efforts of the Human Rights activists who addressed the gross abuse of certain Human Rights around the world, we have been able to draw inspiration from their work to work together with others to achieve a world where all peoples rights are respected and protected.

It's the last weekend before International Day of Peace, whose theme is the Right of Peoples to Peace, addressing that promotion of peace is vital for the full enjoyment of all human rights. The USFMEP is also supporting human rights and peace, while rejecting genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.

1/5 of the world’s population today is made of young people between the ages of 15 and 25, and in many developing countries, the proportion is even higher. Youth have the highest stake today in ensuring their futures are sustainable. For this, their voices must be heard and taken into account at all decision-making fora. On today's International #DemocracyDay, see how we engage young women in democratic processes: http://owl.li/BwvUo

As a member of the International Association of Women Judges, USFMEP President Sally Kader had the pleasure of attending their 12th Biennial International Conference: 'Justice for All' which took place in Arusha, Tanzania this past May.

Over the course of the conference, participants discussed a wide variety of topics including justice for vulnerable witnesses, the global leadership of women, sextortion, results-based case management, judicial communication, justice in inter-state child abductions, and opportunities for judges beyond the bench. The work of the IAWJ and the discussions of this conference stand in line with the priorities of the USFMEP, particularly emphasizing the empowerment of women and justice for all.

Conflict often arises due to religious, cultural, political, and economic classes across nations. For this reason, it is crucial for peace initiatives to begin with the promotion of tolerance across all matters. This absolutely unprecedented delegation of religious and political leaders from across the world served the intended purpose of reaching the global community in pursuit of this goal. In attendance were 30 Imams and Rabbis from around the world, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, and UN Goodwill Ambassador Russell Simmons

Speaking here is Rabbi Marc Schneier, President and Chairman of The Federation for Ethnic Understanding (FFEU).

This event was a once in a lifetime opportunity, and the USFMEP is thankful to have been involved with such an impressive group of individuals, all committed to the priorities of religious tolerance and peace that the USFMEP holds so dearly.

The U.S. Federation for Middle East Peace (U.S.FMEP)
Introduction

The United States Federation for Middle East Peace (U.S.FMEP) is a non-profit organization, which promotes the United Nations commitment to international peace, security and justice through educational programs, public relations and community outreach initiatives. UFMEP works to provide Americans and Europeans with information about the Middle East including its history, religions, cultures and political landscape. The goal is to promote a greater understanding of Middle Eastern culture through seminars, workshops, roundtables, and public forums. In addition, UFMEP engages the people of the Middle East in dialogue, educating them about western culture and tradition, emphasizing the inherently peaceful nature of western civilizations.  Our objective is to strengthen relations between the United States and the Arab and Muslim worlds by undermining common misconceptions and enhancing tolerance.  Our efforts in facilitating interfaith dialogue among religious leaders and youth representatives are important in achieving these objectives.  Moreover, we seek to mobilize and empower youth and women in the fight to achieve global peace.  In support of our mission, we have developed the following programs:  Building International Peace; Women’s Empowerment; Youth; Human Trafficking; and Universal Family Day.  We have established networks and liaison offices in other regions of the world to help raise awareness on issues concerning peace in the Middle East; utilizing the latest methods in information technology.
