Amplify Peace: Creating a Better Story Together

Amplify Peace: Creating a Better Story Together

Amplify Peace is a global movement promoting the principles of peacemaking to create change in our world through training, resources and transformational immersive encounters locally and globally. It starts with one. It starts with me. How do we listen to the voices and stories of those we haven’t heard? How do we posture ourselves to learn another narrative or perspective? And, how do we then live differently? Living as peacemakers is a lifestyle not a quick fix. One person multiplies into a group, a community, a movement and grassroots change and transformation begins to happen. We believe that women are at the forefront of this collective transformation of peacemaking. Together we can create a better world, a better story. Let’s begin listening now.
