encourage the study of issues related to the promotion of peace and
prevention of war, and advocate the use of peaceful rather than violent
methods for the resolution of conflict. We believe that peace is possible
through the application of alternative methods of conflict resolution,
whether the conflict be at an international level or interpersonal
level. Everything we do to encourage others to believe non-violent
solutions are possible and to actively express their concerns helps
to bring about changes that will ripple through all levels of society.
By working together with understanding, we can all help make peace
