WHO WE ARE
Atlantic Institute is a non-profit organization headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia whose goal is to facilitate dialogue and bridge cultures around the globe. For a better world of peace and understanding, we would like to develop public awareness for diverse cultures, beliefs, traditions, and opinions. With our branches in Florida, Alabama, Tennessee and South Carolina, we have been able to dedicate our efforts and resources for building cross-cultural and interfaith dialogue. Atlantic Institute was established in 2012 as a derivative of the Istanbul Center.
Atlantic Institute is a non-profit civic organization that provides various academic and educational platforms to promote diversity in our society. We are inspired by the ideas and activism of thinkers and activists like Mahatma Gandhi, M. Fethullah Gulen, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Nelson Mandela, Mevlana Rumi and Mother Teresa who all emphasize the importance of understanding, acceptance, inclusiveness, justice and nonviolent peacebuilding in achieving the Beloved Community.
Through a wide range of activities that bring local community members from various ethnic and religious backgrounds, we seek to proactively contribute to educational, cultural, social, and humanitarian issues in our community. We believe in the power of personal interaction and communicative dialogue as they are the best channels to build mutual understanding, trust, and harmony for a peaceful world.
