You can help make Envision Peace Museum a reality.
Creating a museum about peace, justice and social change is a major undertaking. For Envision, it means working to open a welcoming and accessible museum space in Center City Philadelphia while simultaneously “being the museum now.” In all respects, we aim to be a learning pipeline that supports people in taking their next step toward positive and peaceful social change.
This museum is truly congruent; its scope and aim are fully realized in the method of implementation. It is extremely evident how intentional you are with all of your choices, particularly in the level of community participation/buy-in at the onset and program/exhibit development. How inspiring! I honestly had goosebumps.

Envision Peace Museum has the makings of a pioneer peace museum which will be widely welcomed and admired, not only in the USA but throughout the world, and whose philosophy, displays, and programs will inspire others to follow suit.

Our world is so divided. We need a lighthouse to guide us. In the envision Peace Museum, when we are troubled and need guidance, we’ll have a place to go. When a teacher needs resources to pass on values, they’ll have a place to go to. That’s what I see in Envision Peace Museum.

A peace and justice museum must speak truth to power, must be willing to raise the uncomfortable questions, and the significance of having it in Philadelphia and the United States is extremely important, because unfortunately, to the majority of the people in the world today, sadly the vision of the United States is one of violence and brutality.

This is not just about a museum, this is a place of education, a place of sharing, a place to lay-out in workshops and classes, in interactions and exchange, what it really means to live in a peaceful environment.
