Past efforts to secure a stable global community free from international war have failed. It’s time to try something new.
Project Enduring Peace is unique in three main ways. First, it’s generated and led solely by women—mothers, grandmothers, daughters, and aunts. Aided by likeminded men, it is the women of Earth rising up to put an end to what is arguably the greatest evil we engage in.
Second, it focuses on wellbeing of children, now and into the future, not on political, religious, or balance-of-power perspectives, but on the wellbeing of all children of all nations.
Third, its approach to ending international wars as described by the treaty that is its primary goal is anticipatory, not reactionary: Pressure is applied by the global community to prevent an attack rather than applying punishments such a sanctions after the fact. Time has changed many things since the writing of previous treaties and pacts to halt international wars (see PEP Rationale). One of these is the extent to which the global community is intertwined; something that affects one nation may now affect virtually all. As a consequence, this true entanglement of nations, along with technological advances in global communication, intelligence gathering, and communication, provides the means to enforce a global peace treaty (see “How the Treaty Might Work”). PEP’s unique feminine organizational structure, its child-centered orientation, and its noncontroversial positive goal, offers something new and desperately needed at this crucial, pivotal moment in human history. It aims to create an exciting, powerfully attractive historical movement that can swiftly unite a critical mass of people within all nations to a great common cause.
We can do this!

Working Group - 2023
Peggy Lang As an award-winning ghostwriter of a political memoir and co-author of political fiction, I'm passionate about using human intelligence to prevail over the insanities of war and needless human suffering. I've participated in several peace efforts and hope that PEP will prove to offer a direction that changes the course of history.
My grandchildren, all born since the U.S. invaded Afghanistan and Iraq, our longest war (2003 - 2020), believe that our country was always at war, no big deal. PEP is working towards both changing mindsets and ending war, and that is why I support this organization so that all children can grow up in a world with enduring peace.
Project Enduring Peace is a brilliant blueprint to save humanity from needless war. I am proud to be a supporter.
From space flight to disease eradication, history is filled with achievements born of daring ideas. Project Enduring Peace is the means for achieving the daring idea of a world without war. I dream of a day when the factors which lead to war are re-engineered to the mutual benefit of all parties. War is not inevitable, it's a human construction. We are one tiny species on a mote of dust floating haplessly in the cosmic ocean. The time has come for humanity to grow up and leave war behind.
