Light Upon Light - Shifting the Paradigm for Combating Extremism & Hate.

No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” (Albert Einstein) 

We live in an age of intersecting and mutually reinforcing extremisms. It’s an Age of Anger which all too often manifests as violence. The current social, political and cultural climate threatens our future, hindering progress and human development. This Age of Extremisms is a generational struggle and we each have a role and responsibility to combat it.

LightUponLight.online  is an online portal dedicated to the development of a social movement built on principles antithetical to polarization, hate and extremism. We combat radicalization with Radical Good, and we are building out an off- and online ecosystem that provides a holistic vision to address each stage of the radicalization process.

Our combat- and alternative messaging systems promotes a paradigm shift representative of a New Enlightenment. Our cadre of former extremists and network of like-minded activists and influencers calls to action and provides professional, evidence-based interventions. Our helpline provides round the clock emergency services, counseling and mentorship to families, friends, community members and individuals susceptible to or engaging in extremist movements or ideologies. We train private, public and philanthropic organizations and partner with others. Our paradigm, programming and platform is set to mitigate a broader social movement. But to do so, WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!

There are several ways you can assist us:

We need to get moving. We take the world we live in today for granted. There is no guarantee that we will continue to make progress.

The rise of polarization, hate and extremism is an epidemic that needs addressed in the same way concerns such as HIV, smoking/ addiction, mental health, the spread of malaria or cancer are handled holistically. The time to act is now! We thank you!
