Globally, Act Locally Peace is more than the absence
of war between nations. Violence, injustice and environmental
degradation are plagues that undermine the quality of life
of the world's inhabitants every day and threaten humankind
and the planet with ultimate extinction. Working for peace
is a way of life that recognizes the value and sanctity of
all life and actively seeks ways for us to live in balance
and harmony with each other and the planet.. Working together
to create real peace for all is the most important goal for
humanity. By becoming a member of the Peace Resource Center,
