Why Commit?

It’s an opportunity to affirm that peace matters, and that there are alternatives to the violence we see in the news every day.

It’s a moment to celebrate those who are working for peace in our communities and in our world.

And it’s a day to stand up and be counted!

This year, join the U.S. Institute of Peace as we mark our 30th anniversary year with the Peace Day Challenge!

Get Started!
