Live Peace with United States Institute of Peace
Every Saturday we love to highlight an organization that makes Good Happen. This week we are featuring the United States Institute of Peace (USIP). USIP is an independent, nonpartisan conflict management center created by Congress that was designed to handle international conflicts without having to resort to violence. They work towards four goals: Working to save lives, strengthening the government’s ability to manage conflicts before they escalate, reducing the costs government, and enhancing national security. More about their mission statements can be read here.
In addition to the work they do with international conflict management, they also hold events that coincide with their mission. They also offer online education for those who want to learn how to be involved with international conflict management, as well as grants and fellowships or those who are working on peace building.
Overall, USIP works towards upholding peace in the world while teaching others how to do the same.
Pay it Forward!
