The core of any movement is its people. Ignorance, isolation, misinformation, and propaganda keep people from discovering their shared spirituality and common humanity. Whether Muslim, Christian, Jew, or otherwise, these factors perpetuate distortions and encourage divisions. Therefore, Education and Community Outreach is a critical component of Trac5.
Educating communities, serving together, researching facts, and fomenting dialogue fosters reconciliatory movement in people. We work with partners in the academic, religious, business and political communities to bring together needed tools, unleash creative synergies, and provide validation and access for the work both locally and globally.
Empowering (rather than alienating) the vast majorities in each faith community will create exponential change in the global arena. We have witnessed a transformative process occur over and over in specific situations, which convinces us these ideas and methods will continue to succeed in directly confronting radical, bigoted and often militant views.
Leadership development programs, international youth exchanges, and faith-discussion panels can repair misunderstandings and misconceptions regarding faith and culture, laying the foundation for ongoing collaboration. Projects that support this fight include new translations and correlations of the Gospels and Qur'an in association with internationally recognized institutions and scholars. These help dispel deadly misunderstandings while undermining radical interpretations of the Holy Books and hence, militaristic adventurism.
