The One Love gala was inspired by Bob Marley’s song One Love!
The One Love Gala is a Fundraiser for Interfaith Prison Chaplaincy.
The Gala was born in a moment of inspiration some five years ago when Chaplaincy was under serious threat in Canada. The Chaplaincy community came together around the idea of an event that goes beyond simply advocating for the continuation of the crucial services in Canadian Prisons, to one that celebrates their work with the incarcerated.
The One Love Gala is just that - an evening of celebration, awards and entertainment, with a dash of advocacy thrown in for good measure.

anger, hatred, and bitterness behind, that I would still be in prison.”
