It will bring together various government agencies, including the National Congress, the armed forces and law enforcement agencies, trade unions and union leaders, high academic authorities, representatives of the judiciary, and firefighters, among others.
“Three institutions with ethical goals, the Grand Lodge of Chile, the Mixed Grand Lodge, and the Grand Lodge of Women, have also agreed this year to carry out an act in which virtue and ethics are at the heart of the anniversaries.”They must do so, United always, the fatherland and its children, as well as those who came to our republic in search of a better life,” said the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Chile, Sebastián Jans Pérez.
With this in mind, Jans added: ““We are convinced that, given the abundance of different assessments, interpretations, or coherent positions, the importance of ethical construction as a reference point in our communication between different people and groups is fundamental.”
