Universal Peace Federation

The latest in a long list of Unification Church front groups and organizations.

Note: the Unification Church states that the UPF is not a new organization, but rather a new name and mission for the Interreligious and International Federation for World Peace (IIFWP).

The Universal Peace Federation (Peace Federation) was founded by Dr. and Mrs. Sun Myung Moon on September 12, 2005, as a global alliance of religious, academic, political and civic leaders, and organizations joined together to promote peace, that is, a unified world in which all people live together in harmony, cooperation and co-prosperity.

The Peace Federation provides a mechanism for cooperative peace-building efforts among governmental, religious, cultural, education and civil society representatives, all working together with mutual respect and a shared commitment to cooperation and good governance.

The Peace Federation is guided by a vision of humanity as one global family under God, called to live in accordance with core, universal principles. As instructed by the teachings of the great religions, we derive our existence from a common origin and we share a common purpose and destiny. That destiny is peace.

The launching of the Universal Peace Federation represents a new stage in the development of the mission and programs of the Interreligious and International Federation for World Peace (IIFWP) that was founded by Dr. Moon in 1999 (About the IIFWP). In this respect the launch of the Universal Peace Federation is not the establishment of new organization. Rather, it represents the inauguration of a new mission and set of responsibilities that build on the achievements of the past. As such, the IIFWP from this point forward will be known as the Universal Peace Federation, or simply the Peace Federation.
