The Institute for Cultural Partnerships
Communities all across the nation have become increasingly diverse. These changes impact our neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, places of worship and everywhere that people live, learn, work and play.

Demographic changes, and the desire by many individuals to be recognized in their own terms, are factors which have contributed to this increased attention to diversity.

Diversity encompasses many elements, among which are race and ethnicity, gender, language, disability, sexual orientation, age, religious affiliation, and economic means.

Far too often, we see hatred and intolerance for people who are perceived to be "different" result in taunts, slurs, and "innocent" jokes, acts of prejudice and discrimination, property damage, and even violence.

None of us is immune, but each of us can make a difference.

Our Mission

The Institute for Cultural Partnerships facilitates opportunities for understanding among diverse cultures and communities.
