IRD Activities

  • Chapters

    We believe people of all different colors, races, religions, creeds, beliefs, and opinions can live together in peace. We believe that it is natural to love, and that we can turn the “other” into our brother. The Euphrates Chapters program gives you the chance to take action right where you are, and is open to anyone, anywhere. The program gives you a network of likeminded people all around the world working for a common cause: peace. Euphrates Chapters are directed by people like you, and you can choose to focus on what interests you most, whether it be interfaith, culture, language, peacebuilding, supporting refugees, working against fear and hatred, community outreach, or something else. Our Chapters' accomplishments in the last year: visited mosques, synagogues, and churches, planned a foreign policy roundtable on the presidential candidates, attended the United Nations on the International Day of Peace, conceived and performed a Syrian refugees monologue series, traveled to the Middle East and Asia to support peacebuilding, and hosted a variety of renowned speakers and authors and attended local events and films
