Welcome to the Official Site of the US PEACE MEMORIAL FOUNDATION

 

Many Americans are reluctant to speak out against a U.S. war.  There are individual reasons for this: a sense of patriotism, the desire to support our troops, fear of reprisals, a lack of understanding about the political process, etc.  Unfortunately, when we do not speak up, our elected officials do not receive sufficient feedback that we (their constituents) oppose a particular war.  To demonstrate that advocating for peaceful solutions to international problems is an honorable and socially acceptable activity, the US Peace Memorial Foundation, Inc.:

 

1.     Publishes the US Peace Registry

2.     Awards an annual Peace Prize and

3.     Will build and maintain the US Peace Memorial in Washington, DC

 

Most monuments in our nation's capital commemorate war. While soldiers are told that it is honorable to fight and die for one's country, peace activists are often labeled “un-American”, “antimilitary”, and “unpatriotic.” This mentality has resulted in a country that recognizes contributions to war and the sacrifices of the military, but does not honor those who make valiant efforts to maintain global peace.

The US Peace Memorial will honor the millions of thoughtful and committed Americans who have dedicated their lives to peace or taken a stand against war in general or a specific U.S. war. It will serve as a reminder that Americans value peace. It does not seek to diminish or disparage the important role of those who serve in the U.S. military. It seeks, instead, to balance the message.

 

The US Peace Registry recognizes role models for a broad range of peace and antiwar activities. Individuals who have written an antiwar letter to their representatives in Congress or to a newspaper are included, along with Americans who have devoted their lives to peace and opposing war. Organizations ranging from groups such as the Quakers, who have opposed war for centuries, to the hundreds of new peace-related websites will be recognized.

 

The Foundation is dedicated to courageous Americans who have publicly opposed military solutions (including invasion, occupation, threats of war, production of weapons of mass destruction, the use or sale of weapons, etc.), rather than diplomacy and global cooperation, to solve international problems. It is time to honor these role models in hopes of inspiring new generations of Americans to speak out for peace and to work to end the hatred, ignorance, greed and intolerance that lead to war.
