With a resounding and unified voice, we – a network of religiously-motivated Peacemakers from 20 armed conflict and post-conflict regions around the world – condemn today’s mass fatal incident in Nice, France.
Spanning different religions and beliefs, we know the suffering and devastation engendered by extremism. As Peacemakers, we stand together as a positive alternative to the forces of destruction.
We ask that you join us in responding to today’s event and all acts of violence – whether conducted in the name of religion, national interest or otherwise – with acts of kindness and building bridges across faiths. Together, we can counter forces of hate with the power of peace.
