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 the contemporary society of humankind. The Peace League believes in the guiding principle 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 one's advantage over another. We believe using one's position of authority and attempts to best the unwitting or exploited is abuse to humankind.
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 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 a variety of 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. Whereas, conflicted people with negative emotions are people in 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. We see a vast expanse before us where a future destined with promise could quickly adopt a successful plan for Peace. The generations of today have the enthusiasm, energy, and passion necessary to build and foster a platform for world Peace to germinate and prosper. Individuals can make a difference. Groups and organizations practice the art of peacemaking while effecting outcomes among their members. Technology 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.

We choose to promote peace by affirming our devotion to unspoiled truth and sustained loyalty to righteous justice.
The Peace League is an independently owned enterprise made up of one very optimistic near-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. The advantages of a registry permit the sharing of a standard narrative at a grassroots level in homes, schools, and communities. Simply stated that narrative says unspoiled Truth and righteous Justice give rise to Peace. We believe 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.
