Uniting Humanity, Bringing Peace

"Humanity United  leads and support efforts to lift up the voices and will of people, ensure good governance and the rule of law, engage markets and businesses as a force for change, and encourage the exploration of promising ideas and innovations to build peace and advance human freedom. Although our goals are broad, our strategic priorities focus most intently on finding solutions to the global challenges of mass atrocities and modern-day slavery. We seek to support the most credible, capable, and creative ideas, people, and organizations in our field by providing grants and, when necessary, technical assistance.

" We also leverage our resources to directly lead projects that advance human rights. Humanity United-led initiatives range from policy advocacy and opinion research, to conflict negotiations, issue campaigning, and organizing conferences, discussions, and dialogues. We work across the fields of public policy making, research, civil society, international justice, and advocacy to help these often disparate communities share information and ideas and collaborate in ways that amplify their impact," explains the nonprofit's website

"We believe that all of humanity is inextricably connected. That means we see Humanity United as part of a growing global movement that rejects the notion that violence and injustice are inevitable. Information and communication flows, financial exchanges, and transportation links that were once unimaginable now happen with unprecedented ease and speed. That means that the opportunities to expose injustice and to cultivate a truly global constituency for peace may never have been greater."
