The Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding provides practical programs to prevent the growing problem of verbal and physical conflict based on religion. We are a non-sectarian not-for-profit that works in schools, workplaces and in areas of armed conflict.
education: Children don’t begin life filled with fear, hatred and negative stereotypes,
but attitudes form early. We train educators to prepare students to thrive in a multicultural, multi-religious society by providing training and cutting-edge multicultural curricula.
workplace: Religion in the workplace can be tricky. That’s why we work with corporations and institutions to create religiously inclusive policies and practices. We train service providers in healthcare and other settings to work with religiously diverse communities.
conflict resolution: Sick of headlines about religion fueling wars? We identify, train and promote religious peacemakers from far and near — so that they are even more effective in areas of armed conflict.
special programs: Religion has been — and still is — used to justify bigotry and hate. Tanenbaum is known for its conferences and publications on the religious roots of prejudice.
