“The Appeal of Conscience Foundation promotes inter-faith understanding and peaceful coexistence; believing, as I do, that diversity is a richness, not a threat, and that as societies become more multicultural, multiethnic and multi-religious, we need to invest in social cohesion so that all people feel that their identities are respected and that they have a stake in society.”
Antonio Guterres, Secretary General, United Nations, 2017 to present

“The efforts of the Appeal of Conscience Foundation to counter rising tensions and promote mutual understanding will continue to provide valuable support to the United Nations as we work for a sustainable recovery that benefits all people”
Ban Ki- Moon, Secretary General, United Nations , 2007-2016

“With an unwavering commitment to religious freedom and human rights, as well as wide-ranging programs to promote mutual understanding and conflict resolution, the Appeal of Conscience Foundation’s work complements that of the United Nations. I would like to thank you for your efforts to build a safer, more humane world”
Kofi A. Annan, Secretary General, United Nations, 1997-2006
