Sister Nisa Islam Muhammad, Staff Writer for The Final Call Newspaper, is in the Republic of the Philippines as a guest speaker at the Global Peace Convention (GPC). The convention is being held December 10-14 under the theme â€œPeacebuilding for the 21st Century: Interfaith, Service and Familyâ€.
Sister Nisa is residing in Manilla, the site of the historic “Thriller in Manilla” boxing match between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier.
The GPC is an annual gathering of peace builders from around the world. It began as a result of the excitement and positive impact of the Global Peace Festivals (GPF) held throughout since 2007.
Congratulations Sister Nisa!
