Moon Co-Sponsored Event at U.S. Capitol, Rayburn House Office Building Features Croatian Ambassador
The online Moon Tribune reported that two Sun Myung Moon affiliated groups, the Universal Peace Federation (UPF) and the Women's Federation for World Peace (WFWP)are sponsoring a conference devoted to "women as peacemakers" on Capitol Hill along with a Peace X Peace, a women's peace group not affiliated with Moon. The event will be held March 12, 2009 in Room B339 of U.S. Capitol's Rayburn House Office Building. Featured speakers of the Croatian ambassador to the United States, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović as well as yet-to-be-named "congresswomen." Here is the official announcement for the event. [Update: The Moon Tribune reports that invitation now lists Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) as one of the speakers]
The Moon Tribune article discusses some of the implications of this event (as well as other Moon-sponsored events such as the 2004 "coronation" in the Dirksen Senate Office Buildling--namely that Moon uses these events to gain power and legitimacy. More later.
UPDATE: The Moon Tribune is on top of this: the invitation now lists Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (TX) as one of the speakers.
