Peace Action works for smarter American approaches to global problems. If we want to address problems like war, the nuclear threat, poverty, global warming, terrorism – the U.S. needs to work together, cooperatively, with other nations. It also means overcoming the partisan politics and divisive rhetoric that often drown out alternatives to war. By getting regular Americans involved, we build the political will needed to break through that deadlock. Our success comes from engaging average citizens in foreign policy issues like no other organization.
Since our founding as the Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy in 1957, Peace Action has tirelessly worked for a world free of nuclear weapons. Help us advance that goal and decrease the threat of nuclear weapons in the meantime.
Americans and much of the world are rightly concerned with North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, but the Trump administration’s reckless threats of military force and refusal to negotiate without preconditions are an impediment to the only viable solution: diplomacy. Peace Action is working to build support for diplomacy and oppose war with North Korea.
A decade and a half of failed U.S. policy in the Middle East—from America’s so-called Global War on Terror to the disastrous invasion of Iraq—has cost millions of lives and trillions of dollars. It has destabilized an entire region and fueled violent extremism rather than suppress it. It’s time to put an end to endless war and to focus on building real security through diplomatic and humanitarian strategies.
The Iran nuclear agreement has been keeping the world safer by ensuring all of Iran’s potential pathways to obtaining nuclear weapons are blocked. It’s also opened the door for a broader détente between the U.S. and Iran. Unfortunately, foreign policy hawks in Congress and the administration are still working to undermine the agreement, and some are even pushing for war. Peace Action is working hard to protect the Iran agreement and prevent a disastrous war with Iran.

Today, #Humanrightsday2017, let's remember all of those who suffer from human rights abuses. Let's especially think about the #Saudi/#UAE war crimes on #Yemen that have left 7 million innocents on the precipice of starvation and 4 out 5 lack steady access to water. pic.twitter.com/JlEhKEyYCJ
