Progressive grassroots foreign policy advocacy organization in solidarity with social movements and governments working to achieve a multi-polar world in which sovereignty and self-determination are respected, in which economic inequities are being removed and in which sustainable development is improving the lives of families while protecting the environment in which our children will live. Most of all, to build a world in which war and violence become unthinkable.
