Creators of Peace

Creators of Peace (CoP) is an international women’s initiative started in 1991. It challenges women everywhere to:

  • Share responsibility for their part in the perpetration of conflict and in its resolution

  • Engage in the creation of peace at every level of society

  • Break the chains of hate and revenge

  • Build networks of forgiveness and friendship across racial, religious and social divides.

These goals are the focus of Creators of Peace Circles, small community gatherings of women who work together through specific material designed to deepen their friendship and understanding of their peace creating capabilities.
