“Many peacemakers will not see the fruits of their labor. But we just have to hold onto hope.”

-Roy Bourgeois, founder of the School of the Americas Watch

Peacebuilding is a means to a resolution. Resolution transforms people in conflict towards lives of peace. But it can take different shapes. Everywhere is different – because of this, there has to be more than one approach to effecting change.

The space needed for peacebuilding to take root can be created in classrooms and legislators’ offices, or through art and sports.

All that’s necessary is true hope for a better world.
