The Peace League is a registry for individuals and groups who want to affirm their understanding of the concepts of Truth, Justice, and Peace. As a registered member, you become a Peace Champion and attest to the belief that Truth, Justice, and Peace are essential values to be maintained in humankind's contemporary society. The Peace League believes in the guiding proposition of "one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." We believe it is wrong to use psychological twists and manipulations of Truth to advantage over another. Using one's position of authority as an act of self-aggrandizement perpetuates conflict, which deters peace.
The Peace League is nonsectarian and favors no political party. We believe in the Constitution of the United States and The Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We encourage principled leadership and support for a world that is one of Peace forged in unspoiled Truth and guarded by righteous Justice. The Peace League will provide information and assistance: serving Peace Champions as a clearinghouse for ideas and information, providing a curriculum of encouragement and support on various topics, and offering referrals to resources and assistance as practical.
The measure of our ability to manage conflict successfully compares to the amount of happiness and joy we have in our lives. Barbara Fredrickson, the renowned Positivity researcher, says most of us have our days filled with positive emotions. In comparison, conflicted people with negative emotions are people with severe stress who do not flourish emotionally. Persistent, chronic stress creates enormous physical and psychological problems for the human condition. Common sense tells us to reduce conflict, and the world will be a much better place to live.
Subscribe to The Peace League website as an educational tool, and it becomes a rallying point for students and interested adults. We hope our Peace Champions take great pride and support the beliefs and values stated. In the distance, there is a vast expanse of hope destined with the promise that could lead us to a brighter future. Today's generation has the enthusiasm, energy, and passion necessary to build and foster a platform for world Peace that can germinate and prosper. Individuals can make a difference with groups and organizations, all practicing the art of peacemaking. The Peace League is an excellent catalyzing tool. Together the potential is unlimited. It is time we abandon our inadequacies and find the greater good in one another.

The Peace League® is an independently owned enterprise made up of a very optimistic septuagenarian and a tremendously supportive team of advisors, including high school and college-age devotees and several incredibly talented educators. We are exceedingly hopeful the future will provide interested volunteers such that the team can expand into a non-profit, as initially intended. As a start-up endeavor, The Peace League elected to establish its base capital using a membership registry and patronage model. A registry permits sharing a standard narrative at a grassroots level in homes, schools, and communities. Stated, that narrative says unspoiled Truth and righteous Justice give rise to Peace. If we obey the law and respect one another, exercise fair and impartial Justice, then Peace will follow. We believe this principle will be manifest at all levels of conflict from the playground to the planet.
