Organizations to Choose From


One guideline -- the organization you work with needs to be one that helps others or directly creates peace. If you prefer to work with an organization that’s not on this list, go ahead. The following organizations are just a starting point. Whatever organization you choose, be sure to register at RaceToPeace.com so other people doing the same thing can find you. We need to support and inspire each other.
