Learn about our work

For over 10 years, Artists for Peace & Justice has been dedicated to changing the lives of those most in need.

We understand the game-changing effects of secondary and higher education in breaking the cycle of endemic poverty.

On January 12, 2010 a magnitude 7 earthquake devastated Haiti. Hundreds of thousands were killed and much of the capital city was leveled. The destruction was unimaginable, but urgency of that moment required action. We pledged our support to do more than just provide immediate humanitarian relief. We pledged to build lasting academic institutions that would serve a greater purpose.

Learn about our mission

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 understand that a solution will always be found by those closest to the problem. That is why we identify and invest in local grassroots organizations who work at home in their communities to bring about change.
