This project seeks to understand peace as a concept, action and way of life within the Baha’i community in Salem Oregon. Baha’ism was founded in 1863 and spread across the world with its message of peace. The importance of the subject of peace within the Baha’i community not just as a concept, but as a way of existing and interacting in the world led me to my main research question: what does world peace look like to Baha’i and how do they plan to achieve it?

Secondarily, what is the Baha’is relationship with other world religions, especially Abrahamic religions and how do they promote peace within the local community, more specifically with poor or disenfranchised people? The importance of the research lies in a better cross-cultural understanding of what peace is and how it operates.
