The Charter for Forgiveness and Reconciliation inspires and engages individuals, groups and communities, in public processes and in private settings, to practice forgiveness and reconciliation, seeking justice and sustainable peace.
The co-convener Bhai Sahib Bhai Mohinder Singh, Chairman of Guru Nanak Nishkam Sewak Jatha (GNNSJ) and by Dr. Josef Boehle, Director of the Charter for Forgiveness and Reconciliation Project.
The Charter for Forgiveness and Reconciliation is viewed as a ‘next step’ to the Charter for Compassion, which has drawn more than 106,000 signatures . The Charter for Compassion was created after 2008 TED Prize winner Karen Armstrong used her one wish with the prize to ask for an interfaith, global effort to bring a focus to the need for compassionate living.
The vision behind the Charter for Forgiveness and Reconciliation is that forgiving is an activity necessary for healing and reconciliation to take place, when seeking justice and sustainable peace.
