2020 has been a very tough year, with a worldwide pandemic and divisive U.S. presidential election leaving many of us wondering, “can’t we all just get along?” America needs healing and nations like ours around the world long to find hope again. A new campaign aims to provide both at a time when we need it most.

My Peace, Our Future, from the world’s largest peace-building organization, Search for Common Ground (SFCG), promises inspiration, hope, action and healing — to help make 2021 the year where more people learn to live with their differences — without violent conflict — and move forward together.

Now through February 2021, My Peace, Our Future aims to brings together young people from across the world to share their personal visions of peace and what they dream of doing in a more just and equitable world, free from violent conflict.

The campaign will highlight some of Search for Common Ground’s more than five decades of work in parts of the world. It will also share the pioneering work the organization is doing in the United States to educate the next generation of leaders to find common ground and unity — even if they profoundly disagree.
