Peace Works United Together We Serve!

Our Vision is to bring peace on earth & goodwill towards all of humanity.

Strategic Objective: Execute projects, programs and events that promote peace building through education, economic empowerment and cultural literacy for young leaders and everyday citizens throughout the Tacoma and Pierce County area of Washington State, where we are based, as well as throughout the United States and abroad.

Our Core Values

Platinum Rule

We understand that not everyone wants to be treated the same way. We are guided in our work by the platinum rule: “do unto others as they would have you do unto them.


The work we do and doing it well is our satisfaction and reward. We deliver our very best in every aspect of our business and hold ourselves accountable for the outcomes. We do not see ourselves as ‘saviors” or “superheroes”, we are servants.

Truth, Healing and Reconciliation

We strive to create a culture of honesty. If we ever get it wrong, our commitment is to ask for forgiveness and move forward with intentional efforts to make it right in the future.


Obtaining and maintaining trust with everyone we work with is the essence of our existence as an organization.

Human Kind

Everything we do is to further the betterment of people. The needs of the people we serve both inside and outside our organization takes priority over everything else.

Social Justice

Our work is intentional to eradicate racism by celebrating, practicing and promoting diversity, equity and inclusion principles.


We “keep our heads to the sky.
