25 Years of The Carter Center

cc aniversary

An Anniversary Message from President and Mrs. Carter

When we first dreamed of creating a center like Camp David, a place where parties could convene to resolve conflicts, we never imagined that 25 years later our vision would embody such a vast worldwide array of interrelated challenges in peace and health. Since 1982, we have watched as citizens cast their first votes in fair elections, celebrated with villagers who have triumphed over Guinea worm and other preventable diseases, and walked alongside people whose lives have been forever changed by the Center's commitment to advancing human rights and alleviating human suffering. Today, The Carter Center is a permanent force for progress, a beacon of hope for the world's most forgotten people, and the culmination of our life's work. Please join us in celebrating the accomplishments of the Center's first 25 years and become our partner in work to wage peace, fight disease, and build hope for generations to come.
