Intergroup Resources is an online resource center that seeks to strengthen intergroup relations for social justice by sharing materials, tools, and lessons learned from organizers around the United States.
Intergroup Resources also aspires to nurture a national network of organizations and individuals experienced in intergroup dialogue, political education, and curriculum creation to provide “offline” support that can supplement and enrich the online resource center.
Together, the online and offline components of Intergroup Resources seek to
- Provide support to communities, organizations, and campaigns doing intergroup work
- Guide the adaptation of existing tools and materials to locally-specific contexts
- Create online and offline “learning spaces” where we practice, provide feedback and refine the tools available for intergroup work
- Link the four dimensions of intergroup work—Dialogue, Education, Action and Reflection—and deepen our understandings of their interconnections within the DEAR framework
