The Dialogue Project is a conflict transformation organization. Our mission is to develop mutual trust, relationships and partnerships among ourselves – long time citizens, new immigrants, Palestinians, Israelis and people of diverse faiths and cultures.
We explore differences and common values; the intersection of new immigrant traditions with our western cultures, and move from personal empowerment to community empowerment.
We identify issues & action projects that affect our lives in New York and our families in the Middle East. We cultivate a space where we choose to take a risk with each other, and the opportunity to practice: active and generous listening, reflection, Speaking from the "I" without attack, and ways to acknowledge the "others" perspective and experiences.
We meet regularly and with commitment. We surface our differences as we also learn how to make space for each other, as the unique humans we are - each of us inheriting a narrative different than the "other".
