Invest in Peacebuilding

Peacebuilding and conflict prevention programs reduce violent conflict and human suffering while saving taxpayer dollars. Yet, U.S. support for this work has been persistently underfunded.

FCNL's Work on Landmines

Landmines do not follow ceasefires or peace processes – they lie dormant for decades and continue to inflict suffering on civilians long after a conflict ends. For decades, FCNL has worked to ban the use of these weapons, which maim and kill indiscriminately, inflicting human suffering even long after conflict ends.

Fully Fund UN Peacekeeping

U.N. operations do not require U.S. troops and cost the American taxpayer eight times less than a U.S. military deployment would. We urge the United States to participate fully and in good faith in the work of the U.N., as well as its programs and agencies, and to demonstrate respect for international law and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The Prevention and Protection Working Group (PPWG) is a coalition of organizations dedicated to improving U.S. government policies and civilian capacities to prevent violent conflict, avert mass atrocities, and protect civilians threatened by such crises. FCNL is an active member and served as the group’s past coordinator.
