“To have a peaceful population,” says Cora Weiss, “we must teach peace.” This belief is the cornerstone of Cora’s life’s work. As president of the Hague Appeal for Peace, she is leading a campaign dedicated to the abolition of war. She brings her skills as a convener and an educator into diverse venues–from the classroom to the boardroom. She began her work in the early 1960s, when she cofounded Women Strike for Peace, which helped to bring about the end of nuclear testing in the atmosphere.
