PEACE Iowa Vision

  • Make visible the way of peace. Increase awareness of the presence of peace-minded individuals and groups in eastern Iowa, and support their endeavors.

  • Facilitate community, common purpose, and cooperative action among diverse peace-oriented groups. Draw from the peace traditions of many faiths and from secular movements promoting peace.

  • Inspire and educate future generations of peacemakers.

  • Connect eastern Iowans to people affected by violent conflicts around the world, in order to hear first-hand their experiences, perspectives, and needs.

  • Foster communication between eastern Iowans and ordinary people in nations and groups labeled our "enemies."

  • Serve as a resource for individuals who want to learn about historical peace traditions and movements.

  • Educate ourselves and others about the links between war and political, social, and economic practices.
