Mission Statement

The Banner of Hope is a commemoration of children who have been killed in war since 1935. It bears the names and ages of children killed in war all across the globe. Peace To The Planet has begun a new Banner, one to memorialize the victims of mass shootings plaguing our nation. Upon red silk (to represent the blood spilled by gun violence) photographs of victims have their names and age below, a reminder of how much longer they could have lived had the shootings never happened. The Banner’s white doves represent the victims as well as our foundations hope for change. Peace To The Planet’s new Banner of Hope seeks to protest the NRA and other who share its guns-first lives-last mentality. The Banner of Hope is a work in progress until all wars end.

Description

Peace To The Planet (previously Children As The Peacemakers) is non-profit, non-political and non-sectarian. It has inspired widespread examples of goodwill, trust, cooperation and progress, and has opened vast channels of communication between nations and individuals.

Peace To The Planet has spearheaded an array of programs on an International scale that empower children to think constructively about peace, to express their ideas and feelings on peace, and to unite with children of differing cultures to discover and reinforce mutual goals and areas of understanding.

The programs, both consciousness raising and substantive, has resulted in the participation of thousands of children in 80 countries and the formation of a cooperative network of 40 adult organizations worldwide. Many of these organizations represent politically opposing forces. In the early years the foundation gave particular emphasis to pioneering highly successful programs between the United States and the Soviet Union.

Thirty-seven peace trips with young children have been made during the past twenty-six years.
