Al Filipov Peace & Justice Forum

Al Filipov Peace & Justice Forum

Sunday, September 17 at 4:00 p.m.

The Al Filipov Peace & Justice Forum is pleased to announce its next speaker and recipient of the Al Filipov Peace and Justice Award, Michael Murphy, co-founder of MASS Design Group, a non-profit architectural and research firm. The Forum will be held on Sunday, September 17 at 4 p.m.

MASS Design Group’s mission is to “research, build, and advocate for architecture that promotes justice and human dignity”. Working alongside Dr. Paul Farmer of Partners in Health and the Rwandan Ministry of Health, MASS Design conceived of The Butaro District Hospital, a project where local workers helped build a new facility with indigenous materials using local construction techniques. The collaborative process, led to the creation of a beautiful state-of-the-art hospital and helped to renew the spirit of a community still recovering from the horrors of the 1990’s genocide.

The Forum honors the memory of Al Filipov, a beloved member of our church who died in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Al believed in the power of the individual to make a difference in the world. The Filipov Award is given each year to an individual who embodies Al’s spirit and commitment to justice and peace.
