Tanenbaum's Peacemakers in Action (https://www.tanenbaum.org/p...
) are international and interfaith activists who are motivated by their religion to pursue peace.
Today, we have 28 Peacemakers in Action who come from varied religious traditions and work in 21 different conflict zones, including Syria, Nigeria, South Sudan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Colombia, Indonesia, and Israel. These men and women are unsung heroes who, motivated by their religious beliefs, risk their lives or freedom in pursuit of peace.
Our work encourages diplomatic actors and politicians to collaborate with religiously-motivated local leaders to enhance peacemaking efforts.
