National Coalition Building Institute - (http://www.ncbi.org
This agency has developed a prejudice reduction and conflict resolution model that helps people identify the information and misinformation that we learn about groups other than our own; aides people in identifying and expressing pride in the groups to which they belong; teaches how groups, other than our own, experience mistreatment; teaches the personal impact of specific incidents of discrimination; teaches how to interrupt prejudicial jokes, remarks and slurs; and teaches parties to a dispute how to reolve the conflict using listening skills.
