Mission: The nature of warfare has changed. It is no longer soldiers who bear the brunt of war. Studies reveal ninety percent of all casualties in modern conflicts are civilians, the majority of them women and children. It is also recognized that a balance of women's and men's voices are requisite for successful peace negotiation and implementation. Yet, female perspectives continue to be disempowered. Where are their voices at the peace table? Where is the support for women's work on every level? And how can women empower themselves in building peace? PEACE X PEACE is a nonprofit organization casting light on the work women are doing for peace on all levels, from the most grassroots efforts to the highest levels of government. PEACE X PEACE supports, educates and connects women locally and globally, empowering them to build the conditions necessary for sustainable peace.

Programs: PEACE X PEACE is achieving its mission through three independent, mutually supportive programs: 1) The Global Network - a worldwide democratic network connecting women's groups in the United States one-on-one through the Internet with women's groups outside the United States for dialogue, support, and empowerment. 2) The Documentary - PEACE BY PEACE: Women on the Frontlines is a feature-length documentary filmed in Afghanistan, South Africa, Argentina, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Burundi and the US, revealing the critical work women are doing globally to build peace from the ground up and the top down. 3) The Educational Outreach - A wealth of information resources available through our website, www.peacexpeace.org, including The News of the Week, our monthly e-Newsletter, PeaceTimes, and expert Peace Papers.

This organization continues to give Women across the planet a voice and promotes peace through its initiatives. Love Peace x Peace work. Especially its mentor program. I am looking forward to working with the organization in the near future.

Peace X Peace is an organisation that continually raises women's voices and works for peace. It is a well know fact that women are the peacemakers of the world and Peace X Peace gives women from all over the world the chance to voice their opinions, their ideas and their skills. Women from all over the world, from all cultures, from all religions, from all beliefs can communicate with one another and help break down barriers that exist within all of these groups. 'If civilisation is to advance at all in the future, it must be through the help of women, women freed of their political shackles, women with full power to work their will in society' (Emmeline Pankhurst 1857-1928). These words are still so relevant in the world today and Peace X Peace is working towards bringing these words to life!

Peace X Peace publishes Voices from the Frontlines, which I find to be incredibly inspiring and unique. When I am struggling with my own purpose and direction, I find Voices from the Frontlines to be a comforting reminder of the many people working to make the world a better and more peaceful place.

I receive regular emails from Peace X Peace describing the work of many people working for peace. Each issue focuses on a theme. I am impressed with the information they offer. I am learning about people like John Hunter, creator of the World Peace Game. Today, I read about a woman in Washington, DC, who spends time with children from a poor area, giving them the opportunity to learn about love and respect. Peace X Peace is about walking the walk, not just talking the talk. Everyone they highlight is actively participating in creating a just and peaceful society.

My experience with Peace X Peace has been as a colleague in other organisations working for global peace and unity. I find their work professional, inspiring and engaging, and I am impressed with their ability to engage a broad range of people and tell stories that bring good attention to the cause.

PeacexPeace keeps me informed on important global issues. Knowing women active in the organization and hearing their stories has made me more aware of issues around the world. I have joined several initiatives and contributed to several causes based on what I have learned from Peacexpeace.

I find this hyper space/community because you hear more voices, voices that otherwise would go unnoticed. I am a baby member of the community, but so far I am blown away by the information and the possibilities and doors it opens.

PeacexPeace is one of the best networking areas to engender cross cultural communication and understanding. The more we talk and listen to each other, the better we will understand each other, worldwide. PeacexPeace does this. It is an exceptional place of enlightenment and forward thinking.

PeacexPeace has allowed me to learn about peace initiatives, to connect with like-minded colleagues and partners around the world, and to spread the word about the work that our organization does. I found out about PeaceXPeace when the community manager reached out and invited me to write an article for Voices From the Frontlines. This gave me the opportunity to bring our work to a wider audience. Subsequently began to regularly write blogs for the site and to connect with members, some of whom I've discussed forming collaborative partnerships with to strengthen our efforts towards peace. Finally, the site has been incredibly helpful in awareness-raising about peace initiatives worldwide. PeacexPeace gives a voice to all of the positive news about steps towards peace. It's an invaluable network!
