The Institute for InterGroup Understanding exists to help create Intergroup Peace. We need to intellectually overcome our more negative and damaging instinctive behaviors. We instinctively divide the world into Us and Them -- and we react very differently to Us and Them. We protect, defend, accept, and support “Us” -- and we dislike, distrust, attack, and damage “Them.”

Understanding those instincts gives us great and needed power over Them. We need that power over those instincts and we need it now.

Our mission at the Institute is to teach people how to take advantage and build on the best features of being “Us” -- and to avoid and prevent the worst features of being “Them” -- in every site and setting in America. Our mission is also to help every child in America get the full benefits
