Founder’s Statement

Our world is dominated by a belief that peace and security depend on violence. Fortunately, not everyone has limited their imaginations in this way. We are approaching a critical mass of proof that sustainable peace with justice for all people must be achieved nonviolently. In this unique historical moment, the hope for justpeace is springing forth with renewed possibility.

For this, we need to gather a critical mass of support for the peacebuilders, who we call Artisans of Peace. We must equip them with encouragement, expand their expertise, and amplify their efforts.

Violence is not in our DNA nor is it our destiny. Humanity is positioned to make new discoveries in the path of nonviolence, a vastly underexplored region awaiting the daring, the visionaries, and anyone looking for a challenge worthy of a life’s devotion.
