SE MN Alliance of Peacemakers


Our Alliance was formed on January 7, 2003 as a response to the growing threat to wage war against Iraq.  The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are a painful reminder that the work of peacemaking is vital.  We must reach out to fellow citizens for understanding of the historic events happening today. 

Please join us as we strive to end violence in our homes, our cities, our states, our nation, and the world.
