RISE TO PEACE
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on empowering peace, education and tolerance as tools to eliminate extremist ideology and its pervasive brutality around the world.
Mission of Rise to Peace
Defeating Global Terrorism
Although we live in dangerous times, rife with both international and domestic terrorism, there is hope and there is a clear path towards peace – that road is education and Rise to Peace helps to build that path one person at a time.
How to Rise to Peace
Rise to Peace (R2P) seeks to fulfill its mission with a series of educational efforts. The foundation of these efforts is the “Interview Project,” in which we personally interview young people who formerly embraced extremist ideology and became misguided foot soldiers for groups such as the Taliban, al-Shabaab and ISIS – we travel around the globe to conduct these interviews and understand how these youngsters were recruited by these groups and what eventually enabled them to break the chains of extremism.
