Save The Date: October 9, 2024. Annual Gathering of Ignite Peace.


Ignite Peace believes that racism is a system of advantage and disadvantage based on skin color that is both implicit and explicit, and includes race-based prejudice and institutional power. In alignment with our core values, Ignite Peace works through a framework of racial equity, centering the elimination of systemic racism and the creation of equitable opportunities for all humans. We believe these priorities are integral to our mission of promoting the creation of a nonviolent society. We recognize that people of color have and continue to experience oppression and that white people must play a role in dismantling and deconstructing racism.
