The Peace Development Fund (PDF) has announced grants for community-based organizations working for social justice to support organizations and projects that recognize that peace will never be sustained unless it is based on justice.

They understand peace to be a consequence of equitable relationships—with the fellow human beings and with the natural environment of which they are a part and on which they depend.
