AfP launches a Matching Campaign to Make Peace a Priority!

Campaign ThermometerBob Berg’s challenge reminds us that we are at a unique opportunity for peacebuilding in the world, and at home. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are winding down, the US military and government recognize the need to end this state of perpetual war, as demonstrated by initiatives like the Atrocities Prevention Board and major policy speeches by President Obama. Peacebuilding has emerged as a major platform for the Post -2015 United Nations Development Agenda.

Now is the time to move away from a strategy based on fear to one that focuses on peacebuilding and human security to keep us safe. As a thought-leader in the peacebuilding field, AfP works with our members – and with governments, militaries, and civil society groups around the world – to invest in a safer world.

You can amplify the voices of our members.

In August 2013, AfP Board Member Bob Berg stepped forward with a generous commitment to these efforts – offering a $65,000 donation to support AfP if we can match these funds from members and supporters around the world. Our goal is to raise $175,000 by the end of December.

Help us turn this unique moment into a lasting priority.

“It is my great hope that AfP be fully equipped to lead in expanding the strategic impact of peacebuilding through its ability to be a strong and consistent voice in the policy arena, as well as through its unique ability to be a connective tissue for individuals, organizations, and initiatives that often work in relative isolation.”
