Facts Over Fear

#FactsOverFear Campaign is here to set the record straight and prepare patriotic US citizens to stand united as a nation even as we engage in healthy debate about our common future.

What We Do

We foster relationships of respect between wisdom communities. We support and train wisdom communities in multi-faith peacemaking in their neighborhoods for the common good of our children, our planet and ourselves.

Get Involved

With your support, Paths to Understanding is bridging bias and building unity through multi-faith peacemaking. Let’s set up an event in your community today.

What We Believe

Paths to Understanding is a non-profit organization based in Washington State. We bridge bias and build unity through multi-faith peacemaking.

  • We believe these times require wisdom communities to act together for the common good and the future of life on our planet.
  • We believe each tradition offers gifts for the common good, when we know how to receive them.
  • We believe interaction with other wisdom communities enriches and deepens our commitment to our own.
