Hope is a powerful force. When faced with violence and conflict, we struggle to sustain hope. But despite the challenges, there are many reasons to have hope that the efforts of global peacebuilders will effectively reduce violence in our lifetimes.
In Bogotá, Colombia, we learned what it meant to be welcomed as the other, as we watched Latin American artisans of peace build their own unrivalrous space.
Our Chief Operating Officer, Jason Ferenczi, has spent extensive time in both Ukraine and Russia. Here, he speaks for himself and the unRival Network Team as he reflects on the current state of war.
UnRival exists to build meaningful connections among those doing this lonely but essential work of creative peacebuilding. We are moving slowly, listening carefully to unheralded peacebuilders around the globe. Like them, we are hopeful.
