WFWP is a dynamic organization that is committed to providing women with the opportunity to create lasting peace in the world, through talks, forums at the United Nations, luncheon programs, racial and religious reconciliation projects, national and international conferences, benefits, and service projects.
WFWP USA asserts that the family is the cornerstone of peace in the world, and that mature couples are the foundation for strong and loving families. Our organization encourages every woman to become a "woman of peace" through cultivating her heart, the mother's heart, to care not just for her own children but for the children of others, the children of other nations, the children of the world, by developing and expressing the qualities of empathy, forgiveness, and unconditional love.
With more than 35 state and city chapters, WFWP USA was established in 1992 by Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon. Dr. Moon and her husband, the Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon, are a remarkable couple who have worked together for over 50 years, to pioneer a way for peace. A nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, WFWP USA has ongoing programs in seven areas: our signature Bridge of Peace Ceremony, our Interracial Sisterhood Project, NGO Networking, Women of Faith, benefits for the Schools of Africa, the Women's Middle East Peace Initiative, and our Marriage and Family Initiative.
The Women's Federation for World Peace is a non-governmental organization in general consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations and in association with UN Department of Public Information. As an organization of women, we adhere to the principle that by working together, taking initiative, and empowering one another across traditional lines of race, culture, and religion we can create healthy families and resolve the complex problems of our societies and world.
