The National Coalition Building Institute is an international, non-profit leadership training organization based in Washington, D.C. Since 1984, NCBI has worked to eliminate racism and all other forms of prejudice and discrimination throughout the world. NCBI takes a proactive approach beginning with one or more people from a variety of organizational or community settings, including schools, colleges and universities, corporations, foundations, correctional facilities, law enforcement agencies, government offices and labor unions. These individuals are taught effective leadership skills in the areas of prejudice reduction, violence prevention, conflict resolution, and coalition building. When a handful of like-minded leaders from an organization or community have been trained, a local NCBI resource team is formed. These teams offer prevention-oriented strategies and programs to deal with discrimination and other inter-group tensions. They are also available to intervene when specific inter-group conflicts arise.
They operate under three core principles:
There are several operational assumptions underlying their programs:
NCBI trains leaders to work together to end racism and other forms of oppression through leadership and train-the-trainers programs. Its programs emphasize that the need to heal the wounds of one’s own past is a pre-requisite to constructive action to end oppressions.
