Peace Actions’s community-based, frontline organizers provide issue briefings to congressional candidates and meet often with elected representatives and their staff. They also meet with local editorial boards to educate opinion leaders on both the alternatives to the endless war on terror, and the urgent need to address other, real threats to our planet; accelerating climate disaster, nuclear weapons, poverty and disease and the continuous assault on civil rights.
Peace Action’s strategy of coalition building has broadened the peace movement. We work cooperatively and effectively with a large peace and disarmament community nationwide and make the connections between energy policy and resource war, war and the destruction of the global environment and militarism and the cost to our economic well being, in the process, bringing new voices to peace work.
Peace Action works with an international peace movement, and has for decades, building alliances, coordinating message and actions, and pushing the U.S. and its allies to embrace the adage, “there is no way to peace, peace is the way.”
Together, our organization, members like you, our chapters and associates, staff and volunteers are working to advance a vision of the future where the human race is no longer preparing to do battle over what is left of the world’s resources. It’s a vision of the future I think we all share, when diplomacy, partnership and multi-lateral cooperation become the foundation of a collective security that will allow us to work together to meet the urgent global human needs that challenge all of us.
Thank you for all your support for Peace Action’s work. On behalf of our staff and Board of Directors, let me wish the very best to you and those you love.
