Chicago Area Peace Action (CAPA) provides resources and opportunities for empowerment through active grassroots participation in the growing global movement for economic and environmental justice. The earth and its inhabitants are endangered by the twin threats of global climate change and nuclear war, either of which could end the world as we know it.
• We embrace a world free of the growing devastation of global climate change.
• We work to reduce and eliminate the danger of nuclear weapons and excessive military spending.
• We promote peace and reject warfare as a valid method of resolving conflict.
• We confront the core, systemic injustices of political and corporate institutions that support ever-increasing financial inequities and block opportunity for all to share in the earth’s bounty.
CAPA is the Chicago Area affiliate of Peace Action's national network.
