2020 began like any other year.

We rode a wave of never-ending expansion,
cutting a ribbon in February on the
CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY OF VENTURA
22 February 2020

Situated above a slice of surfers’ paradise, on Highway 101, where 100,000 commuters pass each day, this glass-encased building is the TWELFTH Ideal Church of Scientology to open in the state of California.

Then, the year took a turn.
And the world came to a

Kansas City Rides for Peace

Along with the citywide Stay Well campaign, the Church of Scientology and KC community activists partnered for Peace Rides and distribution of The Way to Happiness, the common sense moral code that has inspired a movement for peace across inner-city America. In honor of the event, Kansas City rapper and recording artist Kodde One wrote an anthem entitled “Hold Yo’ Head High” to help spread the booklet’s message of brotherhood throughout Kansas City.

We helped bring safety and succor to an
ENTIRE NATION

In the wake of a national lockdown in South Africa, Volunteer Ministers established disaster response headquarters at Castle Kyalami and launched an all-Gauteng Stay Well prevention and education movement.

FRONT-LINE HELP TO FRONT-LINE FORCES

The first phase of the South African disaster relief operation extended help to front-line emergency forces. All told, VMs sanitized police, fire, ambulance and paramedic vehicles and more than 108 million square feet of police and emergency service facilities.

“The Church of Scientology is an essential force to the health and safety of South Africa.”
