About Act for Peace

We believe all people are created equal, and we should treat each other this way.

Yet right now, we live in a world of ‘us’ and ‘them’. Divisions are deepening, conflicts are escalating, and climate inaction is placing lives in peril. It means every day, more of us around the world are forced from our homes by violent conflict and disaster.

And when the world should be opening its arms, it’s turning its back. Rejected and exposed, in a divided world, people displaced by conflict or disaster are caught in a devastating limbo, facing restrictions and barriers at every turn as they seek safety and strive to rebuild their lives.

We must act now. Until we stand together, share resources, and heal the divisions that drive people from their homes, more and more of us will be uprooted and abandoned.

At the heart of our work is a powerful conviction: to create a just and peaceful society, we must work together. It’s both the right thing to do, and the only thing that will work.

While resolving this crisis is a daunting task, it is not insurmountable. Everyday people like you are making an impact on the lives of others through your Gifts for Peace and this is why Act for Peace exists. To bridge cultural, political, and geographical divides, to back displaced people to reclaim control of their lives and meet urgent needs. To create, together, a world where people uprooted by conflict and disaster have a place to belong. To act, together, for peace.
