Empowering Individuals and Families – Building Bridges between People, Nations and Cultures

Rev. Moon was born a farmer's son on January 6, 1920, in what is now North Korea. He began his ministry after World War II and was later imprisoned in a communist labor camp for three years before being liberated by UN forces during the Korean War in 1950. He came to the United States in 1971. On September 3, 2012 (July 18, lunar calendar), he passed away at the age of 92.

Rev. and Mrs. Moon have proposed a revitalized, renewed United Nations. Many religious figures, current and former heads of states, scholars and leaders of civil society have cooperated with programs of FFWPU and affiliated organizations in a worldwide effort for sustainable peace according to the motto "One Family Under God."
