CONTEMPT FOR ANOTHER HUMAN BEING IS THE RESULT OF FEAR GROUNDED IN  
IGNORANCE . . .

There has never been a prophet, saint, sage, messiah or world religious leader who has ever taught  
hatred as part of his or her message. Embrace Foundation believes that the contempt for another  
human being, hatred and discrimination based in difference of belief and culture, is the result of fear  
grounded in ignorance.

The power of the media to educate and change attitudes is indeed obvious in this day and age and  
the ability of forward looking leaders of all religions to utilize this medium in a productive, unified way  
not only requires considerable funding but continual onslaughts of unbiased information and  
education to the world public, via newspapers, magazines, public service announcements on radio  
and television, Ad Council Advertising in buses and subways and more ingenious methods in  
countries where the majority of the people are illiterate.

THE OBJECTIVE IS TO CREATE BETTER UNDERSTANDING ...
THROUGH EXPOSURE & EDUCATION

Secular attempts by religious organizations in the effort to expose injustices usually have little affect  
on the general public, whether it is the Irish Catholics denouncing the discrimination of their  
Protestant counterparts or a Jewish organization talking about the evils of anti-semitism. Both  
groups may raise more money from their own people, but nothing has really effectively changed the  
problem.

Moreover, in many religions, the divergence between the sects is more bitter, than any differences  
they have with people of a different faith altogether. Embrace offers one of the few opportunities for  
those who follow the essential teaching of a world religious leader, prophet, saint, or messiah to find  
a common meeting ground.

EMBRACE FOUNDATION IS SUPPORTED BY LEADERS REPRESENTING RELIGIONS  
AROUND THE WORLD

It is with the support of scholars and religious leaders around the world that Embrace was founded  
in 1982. The Embrace International Advisory & Lecture Board in 1985, sponsored the International  
Press Conference For Religious Peace at the U.N. Church Center.

In a show of solidarity, representatives all the world religions spoke out in opposition to military and  
political leaders who use the name of religion to sanctify themselves and to wage war. They  
called for the exercise of responsibility by the world press in reporting stories where hostilities are  
occurring between people of different religions or cultures. Too often, the media irresponsibly cites  
religious rather than political or economic interests as the reason for fighting taking place  
around the world. Sensationalistic and simplistic reporting more often than not, exploits a situation  
fanning the flames of anger and intolerance.

THERE IS NO IMMUNITY FROM ORGANIZED HATRED EXCEPT TO BROADEN PEOPLE'S  
MINDS SO THEY CAN'T BE INDOCTRINATED

Embrace Foundation has produced 18 "Great Visions" educational television shows, where the  
viewer can witness first time events, such as a dialogue between a Rabbi and a Buddhist monk, a  
discussion between Christian and Islamic scholars . . . Visits by Hindu Swamis, Sikhs, Jains, Sufis..

POLITICS & RELIGION

Embrace Foundation is strictly a non-political organization.

HUMANITY IS FUNDAMENTALLY THE SAME ANYWHERE YOU GO IN THE WORLD

Individuals left to their own devices, generally manage to get along with one another. People to  
people, humanity is fundamentally the same anywhere you go in the world. Everyone wants to have  
good health, an appropriate shelter, enough food, love, freedom to believe in a philosophy or  
religion as he or she chooses and to live life in peace. To be happy is the basic goal of all  
humankind.

Whether people pray to God, Yahweh, call out to Allah, meditate for Buddha-Consciousness, plea to  
Vishnu and so on, it is all the same. The wishes, sorrows, hopes, fears of people everywhere have  
the same bond of humanity.
Embrace Foundation International
Today in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Central and South America, some of the most profoundly creative developments are  
occurring. Soon our colleagues and friends in these parts of the world will be leading the way in "global thinking." Everyone in  
Embrace has long been concerned with protecting the cultural lifestyles, religious/philosophical freedom and human rights of  
grassroots people in non-Western countries.. now we also must work to protect the human rights in the Western Nations. This  
website includes articles of special interest to the all "thinking" people of the world but especially to those living in or interested in  
Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Central/ South America.
