CPI warmly welcomes everyone here. Here you find the paths through which a commitment to peace can be used to strengthen everyone and the community. Just as individuals must choose their own productive path forward, rather than surrendering to an undignified life, to fear and hatred, so do we face this choice as a country? We choose to contribute to peace and security by building THE BELOVED COMMUNITY: of selfless service that eliminates selfish striving,the promotion of mediation, ombus institutions, culture of peace, non-violence, and restorative practices.
CPI is taking steps to create an ideal of humankind living with one another in harmony. A community of love, compassion, respect for human dignity, inclusivity, equality and justice. In other words, the beloved community. It is up to each of us to build the beloved community because it speaks to values deeply held and widely shared by us all.
We are committed to promoting restorative practice in schools and communities , mediation, ombuds institutions, a culture of Peace, Kingian non-violence, and support the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4) defined by the United Nations in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals. Which promotes a culture of peace and nonviolence, appreciation of cultural diversity, and inclusive societies for sustainable development.
Bring total peace into your life and in the world around you. Everyone must be committed to peacebuilding and do everything that they can to promote peace in their communities.
Peace is the language we must speak! Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Our goal is to create a beloved community, and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives.” In other words, to create the beloved community requires not only winning hearts and minds, but also instituting policies that would allow for the creation of inclusive communities.
“Seek the peace of the city… for in her peace there shall be peace for you.”- (Jeremiah 29:4-9)
