Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding

Founded in 1992, the Tanenbaum Center is a secular, non-sectarian organization that supports religious peacemakers in an effort to reduce and prevent violence perpetrated in the name of religion and to overcome religious intolerance through research and advocacy. The Tanenbaum Center also seeks to celebrate the richness of the diversity of the United States by promoting interreligious understanding. Its initiatives are grouped into five programs: religion and diversity in the workplace, religion in education, religion and healthcare, religion and conflict resolution, and the religious roots of prejudice and interreligious affairs. Each program page offers tools and resources (links, publications, videos, forums for discussion, lesson plans, etc.). The center received a two-year grant from the Henry R. Luce Foundation in 2010 to develop case studies on religious peacemakers, and its Peacemakers in Action Network recognizes men and women engaged in grassroots peacebuilding.
