1. Awards prominent leaders who support the Olympic Truce.
2. Landmarks the Olympic Truce's message through gifts of monuments and statuary.
3. Promotes “My Truce Oath” for spectators to affirm in conjunction with the oath that athletes affirm:
I promise to use the inspiration of these days to make a truce with conflicts in my life that constrain me from pursuing my goals and ideals.
To bring the Truce closer to home at the national level is the major purpose of the Foundation. Ours is the only such national initiative in the world to date, and we welcome others to join us.
The Truce Foundation of the USA is inspired by the Olympic Truce.
The ancient Olympic Truce was revived for the modern era in 1993. Subsequently it has been affirmed by the United Nations General Assembly on several occasions to support the safe passage and participation of all concerned with the Games.
At the international level, the International Olympic Truce Foundation (established by the International Olympic Committee) seeks to promulgate the Olympic Truce between countries.
In turn, the Truce Foundation of the USA seeks to recognize and support efforts not only between countries, but within countries, communities, and households. Everyone is encouraged to overcome their constraints and realize goals and ideals in the spirit of Olympism.
The Foundation invites all to affirm My Truce Oath after the athletes’ oath. This turns mere spectators into participants of the games. The Foundation believes that each of us can change the world for the better, starting with our corner of it. Let the inspiration of the games always be a reminder to do so.
