About this event

Dare to eradicate hate.

Hate is a rising global challenge.

The new International Lab for Research and Leadership in Interfaith Collaboration and Coexistence, under the leadership of Teachers College professor Dr. Amra Sabic-El-Rayess, will serve as a center of excellence for research, leadership, and training, amplifying protective factors against all forms of hate based on one's religion, race or ethnicity. To sustain and expand global efforts to lessen hate and counter extremism, the Lab will create spaces and design educational experiences for interfaith dialogue, collaboration, and coexistence.
