Building Respect

Building Respect

Tanenbaum’s Building Respect initiative helps us to visualize and create a world where religious differences are respected, and celebrated. Our Building Respect resources raise awareness, build knowledge and recommend strategies to promote long-term tangible change to reduce prejudice, hatred, and violence globally.  

This initiative creates opportunities to develop respectful curiosity for religious difference, where we learn to see each other – and ourselves – more fully. 

We regularly post free, practical resources for home, work, school, places of worship and/or your community. This page is regularly updated with new resources. Click here to sign up for email updates.
