Peace for Life is people of faith from countries of the global South-Asia-Pacific, Middle East, Latin America, Africa-along with those from North America and Europe, coming together as Peace for Life-a global faith-based movement resisting militarised globalisation and creating life-enhancing alternatives.
Initially conceived as a mainly-Christian ecumenical initiative in solidarity with other faith groups, Peace for Life was affirmed as a place for people whose varied spiritualities-regardless of creed-are nurtured as collective resource for resistance to all forms of injustice.

PFL stands for
PFL stands with a variety of networks, alliances, and movements where the poor, deprived and marginalised play a central leadership role. We draw strength in sharing one another's grassroots stories and experiences to inspire, motivate, sustain and transform us in our struggle for just and lasting peace. We celebrate people's victories, however small, as moments that foster an ethic and spirituality for overcoming empire.
PFL hopes that a new world is not only possible but is already being built through people's movements, through solidarity among people of the South and the people of differing faiths and convictions, and through our common struggles to realise for all humanity and all creation peace for justice and life.
