Our Programs

Humanity in Action develops international educational programs for university students and young professionals. Our objective is to promote a dialogue about understanding and responding to the challenges that democratic countries face as they become more diverse societies. Our programs explore past and present examples of resistance to intolerance, with a goal of encouraging future leaders to be engaged citizens and responsible decision makers.
