"When movements, groups, or organizations become dependent on donations or revenues from sales for their survival, they are not going to cooperate, but they will compete. Cash is the toxic element in the polluted environment of our institutions. Once we agree on that, we must all be able to show that we are not letting cash pollute our charters and our commitment to the missions we pursue. Organizations committed to change need to prove to their members, that they are able to cooperate, and have the courage to shut down their operations if they can't deliver"
World Peace Partnership e.V. is a non-profit, non-partisan, international acting organization with the aim to systematically initiate and foster processes for worldwide peace building. With support of the United Nations Office for Partnerships and the United Nations Department of Public Information the World Peace Partnership combines its own unique and holistic peace-building strategy with initiatives and the long-standing practical knowledge of renowned peace building experts.
Statement of Purpose
The Campaign for Peace and Democracy is dedicated to advancing a new, progressive and non-militaristic U.S. foreign policy — one that encourages democracy and social justice by promoting solidarity with activists and progressive movements throughout the world. We stand in opposition to existing U.S. foreign policy, which is based on domination, militarism, fear of popular struggles, enforcement of an inequitable and cruel global economy, and — despite the democratic rhetoric — persistent support for authoritarian regimes.
The Peace Alliance empowers civic engagement toward a culture of peace.
Who We Are:
We are an alliance of organizers and advocates throughout the United States taking the work of peacebuilding from the margins of society into the centers of national discourse and policy priorities. Our network includes volunteer grassroots teams in hundreds of cities, towns, colleges and high school campuses.
The Canadian School of Peacebuilding (CSOP), an institute of Canadian Mennonite University, offers a selection of 5-day courses each June. Courses can be taken for professional or personal development or for academic credit. The CSOP is a learning community of diverse peacebuilders who come together to learn, network and engage in peacebuilding. This requires respect, curiosity and a broad range of connecting points for both students and faculty.
