MISSION AND VISION
The Convivencia Peacewalk is a faith based restorative justice and reconciliation program of the Fellowship of Reconciliation. We affirm the special kinship of Muslims, Christians and Jews and regard the Golden Age of Abrahamic convivencia in Al Andalus (Spain) as a sign of hope and possibility for interfaith cooperation in pursuit of human rights and peace. We are deeply opposed to the militarization of land and life and condemn the use of religion to justify and promote violence. We believe our respective traditions call upon us to live a compassionate life and be prophetic in the face of injustice. Convivencia suggests a new paradigm for the world: living well together.
WHAT WE DO
The Convivencia Peacewalk helps organize multifaith, multigenerational pilgrimages between houses of worship and holy sites in the work of restorative justice and reconciliation. We offer workshops, classes, retreats, cultural events and annual peacewalks to nurture constructive peace building and resist the injustice of structural and cultural violence. We are an activist oriented network with a special focus on conflict transformation, community organizing, religious nonviolence and the arts of resistance.
