Build Power, Act Together, Transform Communities
We are all feeling the pinch.
* It's inflation
* It's the epidemic of gun violence
* it's Covid
But not only that,
* It's rising autocracies around the world and the instability of democracies;
* It's violent extremism;
* It's climate change that results in wild-fires, hurricanes, rising ocean levels,
* And much more.
We are powerless to stop these disruptions. We feel dispirited, angry and isolated.
OMNIA trains religious leaders, civic leaders and citizens to become powerful actors for justice and peace in their own communities and around the world.
They form OMNIA Peacemaker Teams where members collaborate across differences, build power, and act strategically on issues that arise from the grassroots of their communities. Clear-eyed evaluations of power result in teams acting only on those issues that are urgent, relevant, and winnable, ensuring victories.
A series of victories by IP Teams in a geographic area results in cultural shifts, in which the people’s tolerance of extremism is reduced, their affirmation of pluralism is increased, democracy is strengthened and community is restored.
