The art and science of war are well developed. But there is an art and science of peace that is just as sophisticated, and requires skill, maturity, and understanding of human capacities and history. Peacemaking is far more than the absence of violence - it is the presence of compassion and justice.
Sarah van Gelder is co-founder and executive editor of YES! Magazine, based on Bainbridge Island. YES! is an award-winning, ad-free, nonprofit publication and website that supports people's active engagement in building a just and sustainable world.

We support and connect individuals and communities working for a just and sustainable world.
We reframe issues, reflect diverse human-scale stories, and offer tools for people to use and to pass along.
