Mission and Objectives: 

The Universal Peace Federation (UPF) is a global network of individuals and organizations dedicated to building a world of peace in which everyone can live in freedom, harmony, cooperation, and prosperity. Peace is not simply the absence of war or a term that applies only to the relationships among nations. Peace is an essential quality that should characterize all relationships.
UPF encourages all religions to dialogue and cooperate for peace based upon the recognition that human dignity derives from a universal divine source that is the basis of harmony and unification and that all people are 'One Family Under God.'
UPF advocates renewal of the United Nations, including a proposal that the UN create an interreligious council within its structures.
UPF implements its programs through a global network of Ambassadors for Peace. Launched in 2001, Ambassadors for Peace has become the world's largest and most diverse network of peace leaders. They come from all walks of life representing all races, religions, nationalities, and cultures, and commit themselves to:
• Stand on the common ground of universal moral principles, committed to promoting reconciliation, overcoming barriers, and building peace.
• Form a global network of leaders representing the religious, racial, and ethnic diversity of the human family as well as all disciplines of human endeavor.
• Participate in peace initiatives and programs that promote reconciliation and cooperation beyond traditional boundaries of religion, race, ethnicity, and nationality.
• Promote and practice the ethic of “living for the sake of others” as the guiding principle for building world peace and a global community.
