WHAT IS PCTN?
The Paradise Center for Tolerance and Nonviolence (PCTN) is a grassroots, nonsectarian, nonpartisan organization dedicated to:
honoring and protecting differences
resolving conflicts peacefully
advocating for a safe, hospitable, and harmonious community for all
WHAT WE DO & WHY
PCTN programs and services offer support, mediation, and advocacy for those who have experienced bullying, harassment, or violence resulting from prejudice; bullying prevention programs for youth; and activities for all ages that foster appreciation of diversity. ...more
Based on a 2008 community-wide survey and the incidents of hate-motivated behavior and intolerance reported to PCTN, we know that discrimination and bullying exist on the Paradise Ridge and that there is a perception by many that some groups of people are not accepted here. See Results and Findings
from our survey.
HOW WE ARE FUNDED
All PCTN programs are funded with contributions from individuals and corporations, fundraising events, planned giving and grants. PCTN is a 501(c)(3) organization and donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
