About Preemptive Love Coalition

Preemptive Love is a 12-year-old social impact organization pursuing 5X growth over the next five years.

A global peacemaking movement, Preemptive Love is working to heal hearts across enemy lines. We do this primarily by working in polarizing conflict zones, providing emergency aid, lifesaving medical care, and economic opportunities for displaced families persecuted by terrorism and violence.

Preemptive Love exists to end war. We are first in and last to leave.

Preemptive Love helps with emergency relief on the frontlines of conflict and gives help that lasts, starting jobs that reduce the risk of recruitment into war. Preemptive Love helps heal the past by changing the ideas that lead to war through relationships and education.

Millions of lives have been devastated by violence. In Syria, Iraq, and Central/South America. But the world keeps trying the same failed solutions: going to war to prevent war. There is another way. Preemptive Love serves on the frontlines of conflict: mending the wounds of war, while working to stop the next war before it starts.

COVID-19 RESPONSE: Preemptive Love is rushing food to refugees who are quarantined and starving. We are providing medical care where it’s limited or unavailable, and creating digital jobs refugees can do anywhere—whether stuck at home by disease or forced to flee by war.
