End Violent Conflict

It’s our purpose — our call to action.

We strive to build sustainable peace for generations to come.  We work with all sides of a conflict, providing the tools needed to work together and find solutions.  We're an international team, with 83% of our team working locally, in the countries they are from - across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and the USA.  


The three main avenues we use to end violent conflict are:


Whether at the local or national level, we bring people together across dividing lines to discover and achieve shared goals. We work with those traditionally in power and those without a platform, like women and youth. Examples: leadership workshops, town hall meetings, back channel diplomacy, and more.

While a dialogue affects dozens, media impacts millions. We use media to stir up thoughts and discussions across a whole society about the root causes of violence and how to overcome differences. Examples: TV dramas, call-in radio shows, music videos, comic books, and more.

We provide a safe space for people to work out their conflicts at the local level. With some creative thinking, we bring divided communities, neighbors, and families together to discover their common humanity. Examples: participatory theater, shared business ventrues, soccer matches, and more.


At the end of the day, we believe that conflict and differences are inevitable. Violence is not.
