Let's break ground together…
…and explore how we can plant the seeds of positive peace and justice.
…and move beyond one-dimensional characterizations about peace and peacebuilders.
…and build, or rebuild, relationships across boundaries real and perceived.
…in our community, our nation, and our world.


About Peacebuilding

"Peacebuilding" refers to activities undertaken to prevent conflict and establish sustainable peace. These activities combat the causes of violence through reconciliation, trauma healing, restorative justice and development while addressing social, political and economic systems that inhibit sustainable, peaceful relationships.
