Citizens for Global Solutions envisions a future in which nations work together to abolish war, protect our rights and freedoms, and solve the problems facing humanity that no nation can solve alone. This vision requires effective democratic global institutions that will apply the rule of law while respecting the diversity and autonomy of national and local communities.

We are a membership organization working to build political will in the United States to achieve our vision. We do this by educating Americans about our global interdependence, communicating global concerns to public officials, and developing proposals to create, reform, and strengthen international institutions such as the United Nations.

Our Vision

A peaceful, free, just and sustainable world community

Our Mission

CGS Education Fund Mission: Educate and advocate for a democratic federation of nations with enforceable world law to:

Abolish war and global violence in the resolutions of disputes
Protect universal human rights and freedoms
Restore and sustain our global environment

CGS Action Network Mission: Build political will in the United States for global cooperation and democratic international institutions that respect the rights of people and nations.
