Our Museum and Center

A vibrant physical and virtual gathering place where people can connect, ideas can be explored, and individual and collective actions can be forged.

A “positive peace” characterized by the existence of peaceful social and cultural beliefs and norms; the presence of justice at all levels (economic, social, and political); the shared democratic use of power; and non-violence.
