ISD's report on “Religious Intolerance and America’s Image and Policies Abroad," which draws from a working group and public forum held earlier this year, is now available. The full report includes a set of guiding principles for policymakers, non-governmental organizations, academic institutions, religious organizations, and other interested parties. These are tools, strategies, and encouragement for all Americans to continue to speak out against intolerance, bigotry, and hate crimes – and to broaden the dialogue and collaboration at home that will help protect American values and the ability to conduct global diplomacy.
