This initiative seeks to call on local peacemakers to help strengthen our U.S.  democracy.

In an effort to understand our collective power as peacemakers in the United States, Communities in Transition (CIT) and PeaceTech Lab are mapping the location of conflict transformation practitioners, mediators, dialogue facilitators, circle holders, religious peacemakers, non-violent communication, interest-based negotiators, restorative justice practitioners and other practitioners and peacemaking organizations residing in the U.S..

If you, or your organization, work to bring together parties who disagree by using dialogue as a tool, we would encourage you to add your information to the map.

 ADD YOUR NAME 

The data you share will be made public in a map of U.S.-based peacemakers.

Follow-on conversations will be organized to see how we can leverage our unique set of tools, skills and sensibilities to strengthen our democratic processes and bridge the U.S. policy divide [1].

BACKGROUND

The initiative is led by the IMCP Hill Working Group. The Hill WG seeks to strengthen our democracy by building a national movement of peacebuilders able to tackle today’s most pressing challenges to our democratic processes. The Hill WG works to promote collaboration across differences in our current political environment.

Collaboration on this initiative is based on the following guiding principles:

  • A belief in a common humanity
  • An attitude of curiosity
  • A search for common ground
