Peace Artisans

Participants in the photo exhibition

Only the peace that comes from belonging to one human family can create spaces of hospitality and welcome.

Increasing global challenges and instability are weakening efforts toward achieving peace. When hope is hard to find, divisions provoke social conflicts, frustrations, and violence.

People forced to flee their homes are among those paying the highest price. Some experience incredible hardship on their journey to safety and are often met with hostility in their host countries. Others are left at the margins, with their needs neglected and their voices unheard.

Together We Can Create A Better Future For Everyone

These situations can be overwhelming, but there is hope. JRS accompanies forcibly displaced people in the most forgotten contexts. Every day we witness the difference that simple gestures of compassion, solidarity, and welcome can make.

It is time to remember our common humanity, above all differences, and take concrete actions that draw us closer to each other. Only the peace that comes from belonging to one human family can create spaces of hospitality and welcome.
