Our Mission

PeaceWorks is a New Jersey nonprofit tax-exempt organization which works to aid the peoples of the Americas and support progressive change in our own nation.

Our continuing mission
  • To embrace the people of the Americas, in Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, and in our communities in the United States -- in common struggle for justice, human rights, and sustainable economies.
  • To work in our communities to inform the public about Latin America and to help forge a movement for progressive change, empowering people to act for justice throughout the Americas.
  • To recognize that their fight is our fight as the global economy weaves a fabric of interdependence.

Off without a hitch!

PeaceWorks 65th Nicaragua Aid Shipment Is Loaded and On Its Way!

PeaceWorks is happy to announce that our May 10th shipment went off without a hitch! Though PeaceWorks was struck a grievous blow with the loss of our leader Jim Burchell in late March, the community pulled together and demonstrated unwavering support to our mission of supporting struggling communities and marginalized people in Nicaragua.
