“One of the basic requirements of an Elder is that we are political has-beens – we no longer have power. So we have the ability to represent the principles that do not change, like peace and freedom and justice. The Elders, individually and collectively, go where we please, meet with whom we choose, and say what we believe."
Former US President
“We kept our country at peace. We never went to war. We never dropped a bomb. We never fired a bullet. But still we achieved our international goals."
Nobel Peace Laureate
“War may sometimes be a necessary evil. But no matter how necessary, it is always an evil, never a good. We will not learn how to live together in peace by killing each other’s children”
Advocate for Middle East peace

“The abuse of women and girls is the most pervasive and unaddressed human rights violation on earth.”
