Mission Statement


The International Peace Group is a nonprofit whose main purpose is to support alternative methods to war so as to prevent war and to support basic principles of human rights worldwide.

 

Core Values:

War is destroying so many people and a main source of global warming. We value conflict facilitation, group process and open forums as alternatives to war.

  • We believe in deep democracy that believes that a spirit of inclusivity helps reduce violence.
  • We stand for the rights of all people to have their basic human rights met including the right to be free from hunger and internalized and externalized oppression
  • We believe in preserving the wisdom and standing for the rights of indigenous people throughout the world
  • We believe that history doesn’t have to repeat itself if processed and that unprocessed history leaves many people and nations stuck in trauma. So we stand for processing and healing history.
  • We stand for deep diversity principles in our organization and the world
