We Are Today’s Peace Movement

Peace Action works for smarter approaches to global problems. If we want to address problems like war, the nuclear threat, poverty, climate change, and terrorism – the U.S. needs to work together, cooperatively, with other nations. We also need to overcome the partisan politics and divisive rhetoric that often drown out alternatives to war. By getting people and communities around the country involved, we build the political will needed to break through that deadlock. Our success comes from empowering people to engage in foreign policy issues like no other organization.

Take Action


Gaza Ceasefire Now

Neither the terrible attacks by Hamas on October 7 nor the brutal Israeli response in Gaza will bring justice to either Israelis or the Palestinian people. What is needed right now is a permanent ceasefire to prioritize de-escalating the violence, safeguarding people’s lives, reuniting hostages with their loved ones, and pushing decision-makers to enact solutions that promote the mutual recognition of everyone’s humanity.

Global Flashpoints: Conflict Prevention and Diplomacy

We need less saber-rattling and more diplomacy, cooperation, and conflict prevention. Only growing international cooperation can help tackle the common threats we face — growing threats from pandemics and disease, catastrophic climate change, the scourge of nuclear weapons, violent extremism, economic inequality, and more. Achieving peace and enhanced security would be much cheaper and in the beneficial interest of us all.


Ending U.S. Complicity in Gross Human Rights Violations

Our campaigns are focused on some of the worst human rights crises in the world and where U.S. policy is making the problem worse such as Israel and Palestine, Yemen, and Afghanistan. Because U.S. policy is a significant driver of these human-made humanitarian crises, U.S. activists can play an outsized role in changing course in a way that makes the world a better place while enhancing U.S. and global security.

Fighting For a Nuclear Weapons-Free World

Since our founding as the Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy in 1957, Peace Action has tirelessly worked for a world free from the scourge of nuclear weapons. Help us advance that goal and decrease the threat of nuclear weapons today!
