"One Family Under God"

We must harbor the awareness that all people are our brothers and sisters.

We must think of all the world's problems as our own and have a pioneering spirit to solve them.
A global citizen who embraces the world and lives for the sake of others will feel pain in his heart over the hunger in the world and will try to help others, even it if means sharing the food that is already on his spoon.

Rev. Sun Myung Moon and his wife, Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, founded the Universal Peace Federation (UPF) in 2005.

Rev. Moon was born a farmer’s son on January 6, 1920, in what is now North Korea. He began his ministry after World War II and was later imprisoned in a communist labor camp for three years before being liberated by UN forces during the Korean War in 1950.

He came to the United States in 1971. On September 3, 2012 (July 18, lunar calendar), he passed away at the age of 92.

Rev. and Mrs. Moon have proposed a revitalized, renewed United Nations. More than 50,000 diplomats, clergy, civic leaders, current and former heads of state have been appointed as Ambassadors for Peace. Among the programs of UPF are leadership conferences and regional peace initiatives. UPF promotes the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and encourages people to work for peace through serving their communities. Rev. and Mrs. Moon’s lifelong goal has been “One Family Under God“.
