Realizing the Dream is committed to the power of nonviolence to achieve positive social change. Realizing the Dream seeks transformation that ensures justice, equality and community throughout the world through three strategies: community economic development, youth leadership development and conflict resolution.
The organization launched a national Community Economic Development program to address health, education, employment, housing, economic development and community capacity. Its Youth Leadership Development program provides systematic coaching, trainings, mentorship and governance to engage youth of all ages and demographic profiles as ethical and active decision makers in an interconnected world. A Conflict Mediation program uses forms of non-violent training, dialogue, community justice and democratic governance to increase the levels of communication and mutual understanding among peoples.
