PeaceVoice is a project of the Oregon Peace Institute and is an idea whose time has come. PeaceVoice is devoted to changing U.S. national conversation about the possibilities of peace and the inadvisability of war.

We are creating a library of previously unpublished articles written by peace professionals and offering them on a daily basis as op-eds to editors of newspapers and online news organizations. Essentially, we are free literary agents to busy peace professionals. We believe that by presenting academically informed opinions that promote peace and nonviolent conflict resolution, we give the public one of the best, and most seriously absent, inoculants against war.

If you are an Editor, please go to our “For Editors” page for more information, including a link to abstracts of unpublished pieces. Then return to our homepage to view clips or the full text of published pieces, which are available for reprint. Follow this link to our PeaceVoice Director to obtain the full text of unpublished pieces for publication: PeaceVoiceDirector@gmail.com

If you are a Peace Professional, please go to our “For Writers” page and read more of what we are about. If you have a piece of about 400 to 600 words in length to contribute for publication, please email it to PeaceVoiceDirector@gmail.com
