About Us

We’re an independent, nonpartisan, university and community collaborative think-tank. Our research and programs address challenges that undermine social cohesion and community resilience. These challenges include racism, discrimination, violent extremism across diverse ideologies, hate-based speech and other social harms in both face-to-face and digital environments.
