We aim to promote a culture of peace in our families, communities and cultures through art, education and outreach.
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."
