Affinity Groups

The Affinity Group program serves as the opportunity for members within the peacebuilding community to engage in conversations that wouldn’t happen anywhere else, sharpening the innovative edge needed to tackle today’s problems. We encourage members to join one or more groups based on their interests and work.

Formal Meetings are held each year at the annual conference, and at other appropriate times determined by the group leader and staff.

Current Affinity Groups


Can I Create an Affinity Group?

We are always open to considering additional Affinity Groups as the desire arises, but due to limitations in staff capacity, there are specific criteria for forming new formal Affinity Groups: interest from at least 5 AfP members, and a designated group leader to perform functions including providing general direction to the group, initiating meetings, tracking action items, etc. Note: individuals who volunteer as group leaders must demonstrate a commitment to the goals and principles of the group.


If you are interested in forming a new Affinity Group, contact Adam Wolf at New groups will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

As we seek to improve the Affinity Group program, member feedback is always welcome.
