Annual Symposium

Annual "Interview Project" Symposium

Rise to Peace also holds an annual “Interview Project” symposium, in which we present a speakers’ series to provide an in-depth analysis of radicalization and extremist recruitment and what can be done to blunt these efforts. The first “Interview Project” Symposium will be on December 06, 2017 in Washington, D.C.

Washington D.C. Symposium

Rise to Peace ( is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating others on the dangers of extremism and terrorism, particularly how these groups prey on and recruit the youth. In this discussion, hosted by Rise to Peace, the panelists will examine the Post-9/11 “Global War on Terrorism” and address such questions as: Have military operations in the Middle East and Africa suppressed terrorist safe havens? Have domestic surveillance efforts helped or hindered internal security in the United States? Have diplomatic efforts fostered cooperation among the United States and its allies to thwart the rise of extremism?
