We believe youth, especially those living in abject poverty, deserve liberty and equality to build a better life for themselves and for their families.

By developing partnerships with local leaders in communities that need us most, Artists for Peace and Justice works to create real opportunity with Valuable Education, Meaningful Employment, Inspiring Voices and Ethical Leadership.

APJ is comprised of artists, advocates, and creatives across all disciplines who believe in the power of artists to change the world. We believe that everyone has the creative capacity and voice to make a difference and that it is our duty to leverage our collective talent to help create a more just and peaceful world.



We believe that citizens everywhere have a responsibility to make our world a better place. We also believe that artists must play a special role, using our creativity and cultural influence to inspire and accomplish change.
APJ actively looks to collaborate with those committed to advancing peace and social 
justice in communities of greatest need. These are the founding principles of Artists for Peace and Justice.– David Belle, Board Member


We believe in 100% impact

Artists for Peace and Justice is proud to follow a 100% policy: every single penny donated by the general public goes directly to our programs.

How do we do this?
We have committed brand partners whose annual financial support pays for our administrative and fundraising costs.
