Mission: Universal Peace Federation
The Universal Peace Federation (UPF) is a global network of individuals and organizations dedicated to building a world of peace in which everyone can live in freedom, harmony, cooperation, and prosperity. Peace is not simply the absence of war or a term that applies only to the relationships among nations. Peace is an essential quality that should characterize all relationships.
- UPF advocates renewal of the United Nations, including a proposal that the UN create an interreligious council within its structures.
- UPF implements its programs through a global network of Ambassadors for Peace.
- UPF encourages all religions to dialogue and cooperate for peace based upon the recognition that human dignity derives from a universal divine source that is the basis of harmony and unification.
- UPF offers relief and humanitarian programs; experiential service-learning projects; character education and sports programs with a special focus on personal leadership and peacemaking skills.
