For the past four years HasNa, an international peacebuilding organization headquartered in Washington, DC, has selected exceptional peacebuilders to commemorate the UN’s International Day of Peace on September 21st. This year, Linda Ziglar, the Chairman of Creating Friendships for Peace (CFP), is one of seven peacebuilders (and the only American) to be selected. Committed to bridging divides, strengthening their communities, and promoting visions of a common future, HasNa’s Peacebuilders are integral parts of the societies they work to improve.
Upon receiving this commendation, Linda accepted the honor on behalf of the entire CFP team, saying, “CFP’s approach to peacebuilding is successful because it is founded on the strong commitment and cooperation of volunteers in the US and in divided communities.”
CFP shares both a vision and a peacebuilding mission with HasNa and is grateful that HasNa has followed CFP’s efforts and expansion since their initial support and collaboration in the creation of CFP’s Cyprus Friendship Program.
