Working to Create by Megan Shore
About No Peace Without Justice
This website is a virtual hub to profile people, organizations and events that work to create a more just and peaceful world through their research, public engagement and activism.
I became so frustrated with stories of hate, oppression and marginalization that seem to dominate the media and our lives. These stories are not just rhetoric; they have led to political action and emboldened a group of people to carry out acts of hatred and violence. And I was sick of hearing about these negative stories. I know there is another way to live. I have experienced people who are making the world a better place through their work for justice and peace. These are the stories that need to be told. This website will offer a window into the people and organizations and events that are working to create a more just and peaceful world. For more about No Peace Without Justice click here.

This virtual hub is a work in progress, and I need your help to create it, add to it and keep it thriving. Below are some broad topics that will help organize the individuals, organizations and events committed to creating a more just and peaceful world. Of course this list of topics is not absolute or complete, nor are these the only topics that could ever be about justice and peace. It is meant to be broad enough to highlight the many different paths to justice and peace and it attempts to add some order.
I need your help to tell these stories and make this website a virtual hub for justice and peace. I want this hub to be for anyone is looking for inspiration, collaboration, or just hopeful stories. I want this to be a place where you can come here and learn about the many amazing people and organizations truly working to create a more just and peaceful world.
Do you work for justice and peace? Do you know people or organizations that do? Do you know stories of justice and peace that need to be told? Email me at email@example.com and I will add them to this ever-growing list!!
