Franciscan Peacemakers is an organization of people seeking to lessen violence in Milwaukee.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ and the life and words of Francis of Assisi are their guides.
They seek to sow thoughts and acts of peace in the home, the school, and the community at large.
Understanding the ''Continuum of Violence'' leads them to challenge ourselves and their community to help people find the voice that violence has silenced.
Education, direct ministry to victims and perpetrators of violence, advocacy and cooperation with other agencies are the tools they use.
Prayer and lives lived peaceably are their strength.
''They are called to heal wounds, to mend what has fallen apart, and to bring home those who have lost their way.'' (Francis of Assisi)
