UGA task force wins Baha'i diversity award
The Athens Chapter of the Baha'i Faith will present its Unity
in Diversity award to the University of Georgia College of Education's
Multicultural Task Force at a reception June 13 on campus.
The task force won the award for its work in developing ways to accept
and affirm differences and similarities among people.
Each year, the Baha'is publicly recognize several individuals
or groups, and the presentation of this year's award
is scheduled for the Baha'i of Athens-Clarke County's Race Unity
Reception at 3 p.m. June 13 in the Reception Hall at Tate Student Center.
The Multicultural Task Force comprises 40 faculty, staff and
students. It was formed to fight discrimination.
The Baha'i Faith is a global religion that believes in the
oneness of humankind and that actively works to overcome prejudice and
to celebrate diversity.
