“Human Evolution is now at a crossroads. Stripped to its essentials, the central human task is how to organize society to promote the survival of our species and the development of our unique potentials. A partnership society offers us a viable alternative."
- Riane Eisler | The Chalice and The Blade: Our History, Our Future
Tools for Building Our Future Together

Caring Economy Campaign

CPS’s Caring Economy Campaign (CEC) demonstrates that our economy is more vibrant and sustainable when it is more caring. The CEC's Social Wealth Economic Indicators (SWEIs) are new metrics showing the urgent need for the US to catch up in policies that invest in caring for and educating people. CEC webinars show how to reduce poverty, promote healthy family, social, and natural environments, and improve business profits. The CEC coalition brings together organizations and leaders to work for more effective economic and social policies at the federal, state, and local levels: policies that break through cycles of poverty, empower women, ensure good care for children, and promote prosperity for all. By showing the enormous economic value of caring for people and for nature, the CEC provides a road map to a better future.

The Spiritual Alliance to Stop Intimate Violence

The Spiritual Alliance to Stop Intimate Violence (SAIV), co-founded by CPS President Riane Eisler and Nobel Peace Laureate Betty Williams, offers a platform for strategic collaboration to end intimate violence. SAIV's international council includes leaders from every continent, and is engaging religious and other spiritual communities to stop this global pandemic of violence against women and children. SAIV works with faith communities to support survivors of intimate violence, and to implement a partnership system that ends intimate violence before it starts. We provide interdisciplinary resources for community members and leaders to effect change.

Riane Eisler

Riane Eisler is CPS president and co-founder. Her early experiences--first as a survivor of the Holocaust and then as a refugee child growing up in the slums of Havana--inspired her research on how to build a better future. Her revolutionary findings on partnership vs. domination models changed the conversation about social progress. Eisler is the author of landmark books including The Chalice and the Blade: Our History, Our Future (now in 26 languages), and more recently, The Real Wealth of Nations: Creating a Caring Economics. Her pioneering work in human rights expanded the focus of international organizations to include the rights of women and children. Eisler keynotes conferences worldwide, teaches online, and has received many honors, including the Peace Leadership Award earlier received by the Dalai Lama.
