Waging Peace is a non-violent approach to peace. Waging implies action. So waging peace is an active approach to achieving a peaceful world It is a long range process involving education, training, commitment and perseverance. There are many ways to wage peace at the family, community, country and world levels. The Social Justice Committee endeavors to encourage efforts in all these areas.
