PURPOSE OF OUR PROGRAMS
All our programs are designed to achieve a singular purpose – respecting the otherness of others. The 2nd purpose of our work is building cohesive work environment and cohesive societies where no one feels odd or apprehensive about his or her place and finally, it is a all about conflict mitigation and goodwill nurturence.
Center for Pluralism is dedicated to study and offer programs about Pluralism in religion, politics, culture and society.
Indeed, in the next decade there will not be a school, playground, college, restaurant, theater or a work place where people of different faiths, races, ethnicities and national origins do not work, interact, play, live and marry together.
This is bound to create conflicts in living rooms, dining rooms, board rooms, and bedrooms, places of worship, work places, politics, eateries, and schools.
It is our responsibility to maintain the ‘dynamic equilibrium” with ongoing changes. We need to prepare the next generation to learn to respect the otherness of others, and accept the God given uniqueness of each one of us, then conflicts fade and solutions emerge.
Indeed, at this time we have several programs that address the issues, but not enough.
At this time we have the following programs in place: Unity day USA, Holocaust and Genocides, and Thanksgiving Celebrations, July 4th and Memorial day on our plates.
We are looking to add a variety of programs to progress on knowing each other.
The Center for Pluralism is committed to promoting understanding between
peoples of different religious, political, and social affiliations. Our programs are designed to bring Americans together, so we can move towards perfecting our union, with liberty and justice for every American.
