What We Do

One of the unique things that the IIOHR does is to focus on not only on doing, and also being.  We shift human understanding toward empathy, compassion and connection, thus fostering interdependence among citizens and dialogue toward common ground and peaceful solutions to conflict. This is the only approach that will work.

Our Organization Council Leads establish what they feel are the clear and direct actions, through education, advocacy or collaboration, to expand and reinforce this shift to compassionate understanding and an expanded culture of peace.
