Peace Direct USA
Peace Direct works with local people and organizations in over 10 countries around the world to stop violence and build sustainable peace. Our long term vision is of a just world, free from violent conflict. We work exclusively with local organizations who we believe are best placed to tackle violence in their communities and we have ambitious plans to scale up our support to local peacebuilding organizations over the next five years.
Peace Direct was established in the UK in 2004, and in 2011 we established a small presence in the U.S. to help us reach out to a U.S. audience. We currently have one full time Senior U.S. Representative, based in Washington, DC, and one part time UN Representative, based in New York. This new post will be based in Washington, DC and reports to the Senior U.S. Representative.
