Led by Elder Quentin L. Cook of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and local leaders, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints co-sponsored a recent multiday, multilocation “Preventing Violence, Promoting Freedom of Belief” international conference in the United Kingdom.

Hundreds of delegates — representing charity, government, academic and faith organizations — participated in the July 3-6 conference, with sessions in London, Birmingham and Manchester.

The conference theme focused on how women and children are leading interfaith peace-building efforts, reported the Church’s UK Newsroom.

Sessions were conducted in a wide range of locations, from the U.K. Parliament in London to the Birmingham Central Mosque to the Church’s Young Single Adult Building in Manchester.

Parliament member Fiona Bruce, the British prime minister’s special envoy for freedom of religion or belief, participated, giving the Church thanks for its advocacy of freedom of religion.
