Pyramid of Babel is a platform that brings visibility to diversity through media and events.
We fight for an inclusive society in which everyone is treated with respect and dignity, regardless of their identity, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, or background.
By doing so, we promote empathy and understanding of groups that are more likely to be discriminated against.
How can we fight discrimination?
In order to create a society in which everyone can fully develop their potentials, in which people don’t face discrimination based on their backgrounds, believes, or lifestyle, in which everyone can live a complete life – in order to create such a society, we need a change of mindset.
Discrimination is inside of us; both as part of our nature, and as part of our cultures. But there’s something more important inside all of us, something that doesn’t divide but connects us all: we are all humans.
Instead of focusing on symptoms, we focus on the cause of social issues such as sexism, racism, ableism, or discrimination of any other form. Our main battle is the battle of rehumanization, of changing people’s minds. If you want to read more about rehumanization and what you can do in this article.
Pyramid of Babel is a mostly volunteer-run organization, and we are always looking for people with different skills to help us develop our media and extend our reach. We are based in Shanghai, China, but the internet allows us to work together with people from all over the planet. If you want to volunteer, share your story, or contribute, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Pyramid of Babel started operating in China in 2017 under the name B人BEL.
“人” [rén] is the Chinese character which means person or people, which is also the name of our first published magazine.
