Recalling a Day
Remembering a Life
Changing the World
Al Filipov was a beloved member of TriCon Church, who tragically was killed on September 11th, 2001, as a passenger on the American Airlines flight 11. His wife, Loretta, wished to remember Al’s life with something positive and peaceful.
The mission of the Al Filipov Peace & Justice Forum is to promote peace and justice among all people and to demonstrate the power of an individual to make a positive difference in the world. Held annually in September, the Forum invites a distinguished individual to speak about his or her work and vision.
Speakers are drawn from a variety of backgrounds and faith traditions, but all share the commitment of a life actively engaged for a more peaceful and equitable world. The Forum’s goals are to challenge and engage the audience, to deepen the understanding of the issues, and to encourage listeners to work for social justice in their own lives, their communities, and in the world.
