The Peace Alliance
The Peace Alliance Educational Institute promotes a national and global culture of nonviolence, conflict resolution and applied peacebuilding. We are a 501 c(3) nonprofit.
What we do:
We research, educate, train, and advocate in support of domestic and international peacebuilding strategies. Peacebuilding addresses issues of violence, crime and war by identifying their underlying causes and implementing nonviolent solutions that build an infrastructure for sustainable peace. Our primary activities are:
- Public Education:We engage the general public through educational programs that share research and personal stories about the transformational power of peacebuilding. We host educational events that range from speaking tours and conferences to strategic forums and press conferences.Our communications teams work with conventional and new media to generate pieces that highlight peacebuilding efforts.
- Advocacy & Organizer Training:We help peacebuilders and supporters to strengthen their advocacy and organizing. Through a nonviolent lens our training focuses on: coalition building, generating media, strategic planning, and educating communities and elected officials about the field of peacebuilding. We organize in person group trainings as well as one-to-one organizer support on the phone, online, and in person.
One of our offerings is a Youth Violence Prevention/Intervention Grassroots Organizing “Cookbook”. We intend for this to be used freely by any individual or group with a similar mission, in whole or in part, to suit your needs. All we ask is that you acknowledge The Peace Alliance Educational Institute as the creator of any material used. Download here.
- Personal Peace Practice:We train and educate grassroots organizers and the greater public with skills to engage in personal peace practices. We work with other partner organizations to train on how to be the peace we would like to see in the world. This makes our message more palatable to those that disagree with us and increases our capacity to engage in dialogue about collaborative solutions.
