Pacem in Terris (Peace on Earth) is a grassroots, non-partisan, interfaith, member-supported non-profit organization that brings together people of all ages, ethnic backgrounds and professions for the purpose of positive peaceful change on the local, national and global level. It helps people understand that peace is not just the absence of war, violence and conflict, but a vibrant, thriving, safe, secure and sustainable neighborhood and world— that peace is a necessity for survival, not a luxury for the affluent.



The Pacem in Terris Youth Peace Art Exhibition is an opportunity for all of us to learn from our younger citizens what the world should be like.
