Press for Peace (PFP) is a research, media and advocacy organisation based in Azad Kashmir that strives to promote peace, tolerance, interfaith harmony and the protection of human rights in Kashmir, and in South Asia more broadly. Its slogan is 'Giving Voice to the Voiceless'.

PFP was founded by Khawaja Zafar Iqbal, a renowned peace activist and a journalist, in 1999. After the massive earthquake in 2005, the organisation was involved in humanitarian work. The work of the PFP was initially focused on local issues but over the years they have increased their international linkages and its network now extends to Indian-Administered Kashmir, the United Arab Emirates, Austria and Canada.

PFP organises seminars on issues of peace, such as the Kashmir dispute between India and Pakistan. It also organises celebrations for the International Day of Peace on 21 September.

The PFP website contains information on its work and the conflict in Kashmir.
