The Frame is our monthly email from the unRival team, crafted to encourage and inform you through stories about ongoing justpeace efforts.

UnRival accompanies peacebuilders to nurture hope, inspire collaboration, and overcome destructive rivalries.

These are divided and difficult times when peacebuilders from diverse cultures, religions, and worldviews desperately need spaces of trust, curiosity, and collaboration.

Gathering Community

unRival Network is an ever-expanding community of peacebuilders. We accompany one another through shared experiences and partnerships that renew hope, inspire collaboration, and overcome destructive rivalry.

Deconstructing Rivalry

No community is free of rivalry, unRival Network included. Instead of denying our conflicts and desires, we engage honestly in spaces created to invite trust, vulnerability, and curiosity. Spaces where even bitter conflicts can give way to friendship and belonging.

Inspiring Collaboration

Forming friendships instead of enemies and rivals reveals otherwise unimaginable opportunities. Pursuing these unexpected paths with collaborators from diverse cultures, religions, and worldviews opens the possibility of transformation, hope, and flourishing for all people.

Artisans
of Peace

Even the most creative and courageous peacebuilders are not immune to fear, destructive rivalry, and discouragement. To remain human in increasingly violent times, we desperately need spaces that renew hope and inspire collaboration.
