Building peace is that alternative, a commitment guided by ethical principles,
chastened by the lessons of history, and embodied in the experience of practical peacemaking.

Foster Peace and Be the Change You Wish to See in the World

One of the most valuable ways to support AMP is to be an instrument of peace.  Your calming presence, smile or helping hand; your personal commitment to be loving, appreciative, honest, compassionate, kind and just will advance peace in ways one cannot foresee.


We don’t have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change.
Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.

Howard Zinn (1922 – 2010)
