Colorado Peace Museum is dedicated to researching and promoting stories of peace activism in Colorado and the world.

Our museum is a non-profit organization. We aim to motivate and activate you by sharing and diving into the lives of our peace heroes and asking ourselves.

We exist out of a team with members from all across the globe who share a passion about peace. Peace Museum Colorado is part of the Peace Hero Museums organization. Make sure to also check out our different locations in Europe and Asia.

PEACE Starts with you
Mission Peace Colorado

Our Mission

We aim to educate our audience through the lives of our peace heroes. Many people both in the past and present day have shown great courage and selflessness to make the world a more peaceful place. We want to show you that making peace isn’t about ending world conflict or war. Creating peace starts today with how we respect and treat each other. Our question now is: What will you do for peace?

As an educational organization, Colorado Peace Museum’s volunteer contributors research individuals, collectives, organizations and institutions in Colorado and around the world that have taken courageous actions to create a Culture of Peace. Such individuals are identified, researched and awarded the designation of “Peace Hero” by Colorado Peace Museum. Collectives of individuals who have, combined, worked to create a culture of peace or resist violence and injustice are likewise recognized with a “Peacemaker Award.” Organizations leading their field in taking progressive actions to promote a Culture of Peace are recognized by Colorado Peace Museum with a “Peace Ally Award.”

The United Nations further describes a Culture of Peace as based on “respect for life, ending of violence and promotion and practice of non-violence through education, dialogue and cooperation;” “respect for and promotion of all human rights and fundamental freedoms;” the “commitment to peaceful settlement of conflicts;” “efforts to meet the developmental and environmental needs of present and future generations;” and “adherance to the principles of freedom, justice, democracy, tolerance, solidarity, cooperation, pluralism, cultural diversity, dialogue and understanding at all levels of society and among nations.”
