“There is more that unites us than divides us as a human family,” said Dr. Thomas G. Walsh, chairman of the Universal Peace Federation.

The path to such a world is formed around a global peace movement that includes heads of state and first ladies; parliamentarians; faith leaders; media professionals; scholars; and business and financial experts in economic sectors who embrace freedom, peace, unity, and happiness.

The first Rally of Hope, held in August 2020, drew several million online viewers from around the world. Its speakers, including many heads of state, addressed a range of issues such as the COVID-19 pandemic, environmental degradation, poverty, and race relations.
