JANUARY 2018 INTERNATIONAL INTERFAITH, RACIAL, TRIBAL, ETHNIC, GENDER HARMONY MONTH.
All participating cities should consider establishing International Harmony Month modeled after the South Carolina effort of Ambassador Haley ( then Governor) and Interfaith Partners of South Carolina.
The following proclamation should be adopted in participating cities and states should adopt this effort as well. These efforts should be housed at a University Religious Studies departments.
THE TRINITY OF EQUALITY
The World Conference of Mayors has endorsed a start. By developing a game plan we call the Trinity of Equality, Equal Economic Opportunity, Equal Justice, and Equal Education, you have a vehicle to build that army dedicated to solving the problems that are the root of all this hatred and evil inclinations.. Your team must be of equals in gender, race, faith, tribes, and ethnicity. We have a very loose framework developed. We are ready to dialogue with the Mayors of the WCM to help Kenya, your own cities, countries, and world.
Step One- Bring your city into the dialogue, Develop a local team of:
1.Educators ( based at a university using their economics, education, criminal justice and law school)
2.Chamber of Commerce and local school system.
3.Mayor Office ( coordinator and grant writers
Step 2 Pair up with a Mayors office or Governors office in Kenya.
1. Define specific problems to be dealt with in Kenya and in the WCM's city.
2. Develop individual dialogues between cities in Kenya, Nigeria, and the Congo. and WCM cities individually and collectively by utilizing the Internet to feed and fuel this WCM movement.
Step 3 Kenya
1. Gather leadership of all 42 tribes and the government of Kenya
2. Have the political and tribal leadership define a number of problems they would like to work on solving. Develop economic ideas with Kenyan Geo Political entities ( Mayors, Governors) University business and economics departments, the Chambers of Commerce, and each participating WCM offices coordinated by the Mayors and Dr Gorga in Massachusetts.
3.Develop educational ideas with Kenyan Geo-Political entities and University Education Departments and local school systems coordinated by the Mayors offices.
4.Develop Equal Justice initiatives with University criminal justice and law schools to identify problems. Ilan Hendelman will develop an anti terrorism/civil defense initiative in each participating WCM city interested in coordination with a university both in WCM and Kenya
This is a work in progress. Nothing is set in stone, yet.

The World Conference of Mayors stands ready to develop it's Trinity of Equality and Anti-Terrorist Civil Defense initiatives for the people of Kenya. We would like to expand our efforts to all of Africa and the world.
Our Mayors will use it's team of economists, educators, attorneys, and health care professionals to develop strategies to bring about equal economic opportunity, equal education, equal justice and equal health care. In these days of terrorism, all our communities must band together to develop a civil defense anti-terrorism posture involving all our citizens.
The fundamental goals of the WCM are: Trust, Trade, Tourism, Technology, Treasury, Training, and the Twin city programs and services between mayors, cities and other local public officials and jurisdiction around the world. The primary functions of the WCM are to collaborate, stimulate, and support positive and constructive relations between mayors and other local public officials internationally, based on interlocking interest and concerns. We feel that under these two initiatives using universities, professors, and students to define problems and develop solutions to those problems, WCM can establish a sustainable effort in all of our areas of interest. We particularly take note of your effort to empower the students in this process. We recognize these students can be part of the development of solutions to the problems they will inherit from our generation.
We also see the value of forming teams oblivious to politics, race, ethnicity, faith or gender. To solve societies problems. We feel these two initiatives will force people to celebrate their similarities and respect their differences by working together.
Our Mayors will form local teams among our participating cities along with their Chambers of Commerce and university departments (business, economics, criminal justice, law, health care) to develop these strategies. Similar teams will be developed at Kenya's universities. We feel bringing economic opportunities to Kenya by putting together a team of tribal leaders, could turn the tribal and ethnic hatred into a financially rewarding effort for all the tribes. We can see where this strategy in Kenya could be developed throughout Africa and the rest of the world to turn people that are against each other into teams of economic cooperation and equality for all citizens.
The consortium of the World Conference of Mayors, their local Chambers of Commerce, and local universities could benefit our cities as well. We agree that the goal will be to import businesses and industries into Kenya and develop markets in the cities of members on the WCM. Tribal leaders working with our Kenyan team will oversee the business and industries. This should turn the tribal and ethnic hatred and violence into a "team" working to better themselves and their tribes economically.
I would like to Chair a phone conference with the WCM Board of Mayors, our Chair People of our two initiatives, and the Tribal and Government leaders of Kenya to begin the dialogue.
Below are our Civil Defense/Anti Terrorism and Trinity of Equality- Economics initiatives as well as backgrounds on our Chairs..Information on our Economics and Civil Defense Chairs can be found on their initiatives pages.
