Crisis Action (Washington Office)
- District of Columbia
Crisis Action works with individuals and organisations from global civil society to protect civilians from armed conflict. We are an international organisation with offices in Beirut, Brussels, Johannesburg, London, Nairobi, New York, Paris and Washington. We are a catalyst and convener of joint action whose work behind the scenes enables coalitions to work quickly and effectively. As a coordinating body we seek no public profile or media spotlight; it is the voice of the coalition that matters. Our innovative model of conflict prevention has been recognised by the 2012 MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions and the 2013 Skoll Foundation Award for Social Entrepreneurship. Our only agenda is the protection of civilians. More information is available at: www.crisisaction.org.
