Abraham Global Peace Initiative Makes Global Launch in New York

Ambassador Bob Rae

The Abraham Global Peace Initiative (AGPI) is a new global peace initiative which officially launched in New York the other day. AGPI celebrated the launch by presenting Canada’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Bob Rae, with its First Annual Human Rights Award in a ceremony hosted at the Canadian Mission to the UN.

The Abraham Global Peace Initiative’s mission and mandate is to assist, encourage and promote, whether on its own or in conjunction with others, the advancement of human knowledge and understanding through the study of and research into international human rights, fundamental freedoms, democracy, global peace and civil society in Canada, Israel and around the world.

The upholding of human rights is a fundamental premise of The Abraham Global Peace Initiative. AGPI says that its exclusive purpose is to contribute and advance the moral and ethical development of the community, work to preserve human life and uphold the administration and enforcement of Canadian law in all this entails

As a new global human rights organization dedicated to advancing human rights, peace, and democracy and combating racism and intolerance, AGPI presented the award in recognition of Ambassador Rae’s exceptional championship of human rights throughout his career. In attendance were representatives from the US, Israel, UAE, Morocco, and Bahrain Missions to the United Nations, among others.

“Our organization aspires to carry Canada’s message to the world, becoming a moral compass for pluralism, justice and human rights for all. At the recent UN General Assembly, it was clear from testimony given by world leaders that the world around us is in greater turmoil more than ever. Over the course of the next number of years, our objective will be to bring the world together under one tent” said Avi Abraham Benlolo, AGPI’s Founder and Chairman. “From this perspective, we are proud to give strength to the Abraham Accords and motivate peace in the Middle East between Israel and its neighbors.”

“I’m honored to have received this award,” said Ambassador Bob Rae, Permanent Representative of Canada to the United Nations. “This is a time to rededicate ourselves to the cause of peace and to the cause of human rights, which is the cause of the United Nations. To be successful at the United Nations, you need to know how to listen, how to engage with other people, and to be open to learning. We look forward to following the progress of AGPI as it grows and extends its mission, which is one that is exceptionally important for the world.”
