The Coexistence Initiative (TCI) Joins the Center

The Alan B. Slifka Foundation has awarded a three-year, $750,000 grant to the Center to provide a new home for The Coexistence Initiative (TCI), formerly based in New York City, NY, which seeks to catalyze global awareness of and commitment to creating a world safe for difference. Center director, Daniel Terris, is enthusiastic about the collaboration. "The Coexistence Initiative at Brandeis (TCI Brandeis) is a natural extension of the Center's commitment to helping scholars and practitioners work together and learn from each other in order to create meaningful social change." TCI Brandeis will host international and regional gatherings of coexistence practitioners, as well as serve as a clearinghouse of information on coexistence organizations and methods. More information will be available online by early 2005.
