Somali-American Peace Feast

This week's Peace Feast at Hoyo's Somali Kitchen in Columbus was a great success! We ended at 9pm and by 10:30pm we still had people talking and laughing and enjoying one another, and we've gotten responses like, “this was the best conversation I’ve had with a stranger in a while,” and “I really made friends Saturday night!” Others who weren't able to attend have asked for another event soon.

Wage Peace With Us

Together we're making a difference in our world. Here are the kinds of things you make possible every day. Peace begins with us, and it begins with you. But it's multiplied when we work together. Thank you for waging peace with us and changing our world from one of hate to one of peace. Become part of the movement, and let the work continue in 2017!

Turning Points in the War on Terror

Leon Panetta, former Director of the CIA and Secretary of Defense, and Tony Blair, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, just launched Turning Point: A New Comprehensive Strategy for Countering Violent Extremism. Turning Point summarizes the findings of interviews about violent extremism with hundreds of experts, along with surveys conducted in Egypt, Turkey, Indonesia, China, India, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
