Your Excellency,

The mission of International Cities of Peace is to help energize a tipping force for global peace. To that end, we are creating the infrastructure of peace, community by community, to localize, democratize, and sensitize geopolitical decisions to the needs of families.

As an NGO in Special Consultative Status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council, International Cities of Peace commends courageous individual and organizational support of nonviolence and negotiation in all wars, current and future.

Our hearts go out to those suffering from the many wars that are currently scourging the Earth.
