About the Founders


Co-Founders

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon

Rev. Sun Myung Moon and his wife, Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, founded the Universal Peace Federation in 2005.

Rev. Moon was born a farmer’s son on January 6, 1920, in what is now North Korea. He began his ministry after World War II and was later imprisoned in a communist labor camp for three years before being liberated by UN forces during the Korean War in 1950. He came to the United States in 1971. On September 3, 2012 (July 18, lunar calendar), he passed away at the age of 92.

Rev. and Mrs. Moon have proposed a revitalized, renewed United Nations. More than 50,000 diplomats, clergy, civic leaders, current and former heads of state have been appointed as Ambassadors for Peace. Among the programs of the UPF are leadership conferences and regional peace initiatives. UPF promotes the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and encourages people to work for peace through serving their communities. Rev. and Mrs. Moon’s lifelong goal has been “One Family Under God.”
