Though the scope of our organization is small, we are uniquely qualified for this work. Our bi-annual conferences consist of several days of presentations, workshops, experiential sharing groups and time together to provide a source of inspiration and courage for others going through similar experiences.
Dialogue is one of the best tools we have for peace building; for preventing future violence and helping the increasing number of people worldwide who are suffering from the aftermath of war, genocide and displacement.

Yet, years later, as a senior government official in a position to exact revenge, he instead pushed for peace and reconciliation. "Revenge is like adding guilt to victimhood. It solves nothing. At some point, we have to ignore the past and envision the future."
