We started this work as an all-volunteer, zero budget organization, as our goal was to create a more just and nonpartisan prevention mechanism that could fairly and independently assess all states and regions in the world. We have developed a reputation for our frank and evenhanded voice as a consequence.


However, we have seen an enormous demand for our work, well in excess of what we can offer with our current model. It is time for us to put down roots and branch out so that we can be sure to be actively engaged in working with threatened peoples all over the world in promoting sustainable human security and peace.

We are a registered charity in the US state of Pennsylvania and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the United States of America (EIN 87-1787869). All donations made after our date of incorporation (19 August 2021) are tax deductible.
