The Peace to the City Network grew out of a campaign of the same name that began in August 1997 and culminated in December 1998. The network was active until 2002; its members - churches, peace and justice organizations, faith communities and civil society movements - continue to work within the framework of the Decade to Overcome Violence (2001-2010).

Launch of the Peace to the City - Freetown

On October 16th 2001, Freetown Peace to the City officially became a member of the Peace to the City Network. As a partner of the global ecumenical peace network of the Decade to Overcome Violence: Churches Seeking Reconciliation and Peace 2001-2010, (DOV), Freetown joined the Peace to the City Network through the work on small arms and light weapons of the Council of Churches in Sierra Leone. In addition to its critical role in peacebuilding in the country, CCSL has provided valuable resources to the Network partners as well as churches participating in the DOV.
