SETTING UP A CENTER FOR PEACE
In the aftermath of the many issues that our society is facing related to stereotyping, discrimination and violence, the Peace Institute is inviting you to be part of an initiative that we know will help us challenge this reality for future generations through the principles of seeking accurate information, critical thinking and service.
The Peace Institute is one of the leading entities in the community focusing on promoting accurate information about diverse groups and interfaith awareness through educational and engaging programs and campaigns. Your institution has been selected to apply for an opportunity to build better understanding and dialogue within your academic institution by becoming a Peace Partner.
We feel as Peace Partners in Education we can compliment the programs that schools have already undertaken, with a specific focus on challenging stereotyping, discrimination and hate.
The following is a list of some of the programs that we can help initiate on your campus by setting up a Center for Peace:
Annual Peace Events:
The Annual Social Justice Peace Summit focuses on diverse social engagement issues in our societies and how to build bridges of understanding and dialogue.
2. The Women of Faith Symposium focuses on empowering women in the community by providing a platform for intriguing dialogue from a female perspective about the issues that affect our society.
3. The Social Innovations Challenge event focuses on bringing attention to social engagement issues by providing opportunities for students to develop creative solutions.
4. The World of Knowledge Interfaith Tour takes students, faculty and interested members of your academic institution to discover the rich history of Interfaith dialogue and coexistence in the ancient sites of Spain and Turkey.
The Peace Institute in partnership with the Department of Justice-office of civil rights will provide a digital program developed to help young people see the dangers of stereotyping and discrimination.
